2024 Scholarship & Essay Awards

Friends of Shrewsbury Crew:
Invitation to SHS Crew Seniors to Apply for 2024 Scholarship & Essay Awards

To SHS Senior Rowers:
In recognition of the excellent work each team member does, F.O.S.C. invites and encourages:

  • every Senior Female to apply for the Barbara Grant Donahue Essay Award and the Caron & Krause Family Scholarship, and
  • every Senior Male to apply for the Irving James Donahue Jr. Memorial Essay Award and the Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Scholarship.

Each essay award is $250.00 and the Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Scholarship and the Caron & Krause Family Scholarship are $500.00 each. The FOSC Scholarship committee will consist of coaches and FOSC members who do not have a senior athlete. This committee will help determine the scholarship and essay awards for senior applicants.

Links to the applications can be found below.

Completed applications should be submitted to the SHS School Guidance office (B203) by Wednesday, May 8, 2024.  Be sure to place the completed applications in sealed envelopes with FOSC and your name printed clearly on the front.

One Essay Only: Every senior applying for an essay award is considered for the Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Scholarship or Caron & Krause Family Scholarship IF the second application is also completed.
Each senior needs to write only one essay which will be used in determining both the recipients for the essay awards and the recipient for the scholarship. Essay length is limited to 300-650 words.

We are proud of the contributions of each member of the SHS crew teams, and we encourage every one of you to apply!
