We received several one time gifts this past year and were able to to award over $87,000 to forty-two students. This is an increase of almost $38,000 more than in the past (see below). With your generous support we hope to be able to provide this level of financial support to our scholars for the 2020-2021 school year.
Scholarship Little Compton is a non-profit organization that has been providing Little Compton students the opportunity to attend college, trade school or other institutions of undergraduate education since 1967. We distribute an average of $50,000 a year to approximately 40 students who apply for scholarships from our general fund as well as scholarships which have been endowed for various fields of study The average scholarship is $1,000.
Our goal is to increase the number of students we are able to support by increasing our endowment and individual gifts. Secondly, we would like to have the funds to increase our average scholarship to $2,000.
