Applications will be available in January 2021.

In addition to submitting a completed application form, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Portuguese descent
  2. Resident of Peabody, Salem, Danvers, Lynn or Beverly
  3. Accepted by an institution of higher learning

Students will be asked to submit the following:

Although academic achievement is an important criterion, selection will be primarily based on financial need. The Selection Committee will also take into account the applicant’s ties and contributions to the community.

If necessary, the Selection Committee may conduct personal interviews with scholarship finalists and reserves the right to divide awards between two or more candidates.
