We invest in the future. The best sign of a world beginning to return to normal is a new crop of young talent heading off to college, or to secure a much-in-demand trade vocation, with our help.
As one of the largest providers of scholarships on Martha’s Vineyard, there is no more powerful embodiment of the future than the hearts and minds of our young people in high school and college.
From 1984 to 2021, we’ve awarded over 1,800 scholarships, totaling $3.8 million to Island students. Roughly half of these awards supported high school seniors entering college and half went to students currently enrolled in college and graduate school programs as well as nearly 100 mariners pursuing their Captain’s licenses.
