Carolyn Greenleaf Fund Now Accepting Applications for Fall Music Scholarship

The Carolyn Greenleaf Fund is accepting applications for a music scholarship for talented high school students. The scholarship was established at Middlesex County Community Foundation in 2007 to honor the memory of Carolyn Greenleaf, a resident of Essex who was passionate about music education and who worked tirelessly to promote music in our communities. The award is made twice each school year for a 17 week session of 30 minute private lessons at an institution of the recipient’s choice. The scholarship is not renewable, and can only be won once by an individual. The scholarship is based on merit, not financial need, and is open to residents of Middlesex County and to students residing in Old Lyme and East Lyme.

The deadline for application for the Fall 2010 semester is 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 27, 2010 . Applications may be obtained by visiting Middlesex County Community Foundation’s website at www.MiddlesexCountyCF.org Completed applications should be sent to: The Carolyn Greenleaf Fund c/o Patricia Hurley 15 Main Street, Ivoryton, CT 06442 Questions may be directed to Ms. Hurley at 860-767-9725.
