LIVERMORE — The town is accepting applications for the $1,000 Pollard Scholarship that goes to a Livermore student pursuing higher education.

Applications are available at the Town Office and due by 4 p.m. Monday, July 29.

Livermore began awarding the scholarship in 1980 following the opening of a box containing papers showing Augustus Pollard had set aside funds, with instructions that the interest be used each year to help a Livermore student with his or her higher education.

To be eligible, an applicant must:

* Provide a statement explaining why they want the scholarship.

* Demonstrate that they have been a Livermore resident for at least five years.

* Provide proof, usually a transcript, showing they have successfully completed at least one grade level or unit at a post-secondary school, college or university.

A committee consisting of the five selectpersons, a member of the RSU 73 School Board and a citizen at large will screen the applications during their annual meeting the evening of Monday, July 30. A random drawing from the pool of qualified applicants will follow.

To be fair to all applicants, prior scholarship recipients must wait a full year before reapplying.

For more information, contact administrative assistant Kurt Schaub at 897-3207.
