Alumni Appeal


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.

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 Named and Memorial 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 Named or Memorial Scholarships.  In 2020 we awarded $85,650 to high school graduates and college students.That brings the total amount of scholarships distriuted since our inception to over $1.9 million.

Our organization is unique among others in the area in that it not only makes awards to graduating high school seniors, but continues to support eligible 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 Bolton High School's 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.
