LIVERMORE — Selectpersons were told Monday that applications for the $1,000 Pollard Scholarship are available at the Town Office, 10 Crash Road.

Completed applications must be returned to the Town Office by 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 7.

Each year the scholarship is presented to a Livermore resident pursuing an academic or trade education degree. The tradition began in 1980 after a box of papers was opened showing that the late Augustus Pollard had established a scholarship fund. The funds were invested with instructions that the interest be used each year to help a Livermore resident pursuing a higher education.

Applicants must submit an essay explaining their reason for applying, provide a transcript or other proof showing successful completion of at least one semester of higher education and verify they have been a Livermore resident for at least five years.

Applications will be screened by the selectpersons, a Livermore director to Regional School Unit 73 and a citizen at large. Final selection will be made by a random drawing.

For more information call the Town Office, 207-897-3207.
