  About

The Bolton Scholarship Fund was established in 1971. It is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to coordinate the accumulation and distribution of money for the further education of Bolton High School graduates and/or Bolton, CT residents. Federal tax exempt status was established in 1987. The Bolton Scholarship Committee is composed of volunteer members representing various town organizations and the community at large. The Committee is responsible for maintaining the Permanent Fund, a General Fund, and Memorial and Special Funds. In addition to the annual business and town-wide appeals, the committee also contacts BHS alumni and conducts a Phonathon each year. Contributions are always welcome and may be sent to the address listed at the bottom of this page. Information is also available with regard to the establishment of Memorial and/or Special Funds.  In 2016 we awarded $93,525 to high school graduates and college students.That brings the total amount of scholarships distriuted since our inception to almost $1.5 million.

Our organization is unique among others in the area in that it not only makes awards to graduating seniors, but continues to support Bolton students who reapply throughout their college careers. The distribution of scholarship money is a responsibility that the committee takes very seriously. We review and revise our application forms and point system as needed, acting in the best interests of both recipients and donors. We strive to help as many applicants as possible.

The basic minimum scholarship is $300 and multiple awards may also be given. Awards to graduating BHS recipients are announced at the Bolton High School Senior Celebration, typically in June. All other recipients will receive notification by mail. Names of all recipients are listed in the graduation program. Scholarships go directly to students' accounts at their respective institutions.
