Norlands scholarshipoffered to seniors

Morning Sentinel Staff

LIVERMORE -- High school seniors have the chance to receive a $1,000 scholarship, named in honor of the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center (Norlands) founder, Ethel "Billie" Gammon. Applications are due by May 15.

One $1,000 scholarship is awarded each year to a Maine high school senior who has been inspired by their experience at the Norlands and is planning to pursue a field that can be related to its mission, which includes history, but could also include American studies, education, museum studies and sustainable agriculture for example, according to a news release.

Applicants must complete an application and submit an essay of 300-500 words about how experiencing living history at the Norlands relates to and/or has impacted their interests and their life plans. A committee will review the applications for completeness, quality of writing and for clear demonstration of how visiting the Norlands has inspired the applicant. The recipient will be notified in early June. Applications are available by visiting or emailing norlands@norlands. org.
