Tom Leggat Opportunities Fellowship Award for Youth Now Accepting Nominations

The Trustees of the Theodore Edson Parker Foundation established a fellowship award at the Greater Lowell Community Foundation in honor of former Trustee Tom Leggat. In recognition of Tom’s interest in the advancement of youth and his dedication to the betterment of Lowell, an award of up to $5,000 will be granted to at least one young promising Lowellian.

Examples of the kind of opportunities the Trustees have in mind are a post graduate year at an independent school, challenging outdoors and wilderness programs, college-level summer school, overseas travel and homestay programs, year-long internships that have obvious enrichment potential, and foreign language acquisition and study courses. The Leggat award may not be used for the purpose of conventional college scholarships.

Please see the attached nomination form for more information. Nominations must be fully completed (typed) and returned via email, by April 20th, 2018 for consideration.
