Seeking Art & Health Students for Annual Scholarships
By Denise Tansey
New Leaf Market is now accepting applications for the 12th Annual New Leaf Market/Matthew Tansey Memorial scholarship and the 5th Annual New Leaf Market/Bryce Buchanan Memorial scholarship. The Matthew Tansey scholarship is offered to an individual enrolled in a health, healing or nutrition program. Individuals enrolled in an art program are encouraged to apply for the Bryce Buchanan scholarship.
Applications are now available at the customer service desk and on the website, www.newleafmarket.coop/newsroom/1000-scholarships-available. One thousand dollars will be available for each scholarship. The scholarships are open to all local residents, although the scholarship committee may give special consideration to New Leaf Market owners and employees. Selection of scholarship recipients is based on financial need, academic accomplishment, community involvement, and how the applicant intends to use his/her education to benefit others. Previous applicants and recipients may reapply. Completed applications must be submitted to the service desk by Friday, May 28, 2010. Scholarship recipients will be recognized at the Annual Ownership meeting in August (date to be announced).
There are no paid advertisements for these scholarships. The only announcements, other than this newsletter, are posters mailed to local high schools, colleges, and a few other organizations. If you know individuals who are studying in the areas of health or the visual arts, please tell them about our scholarships.
