Richardson, Parker scholarships offered
Middlesex residents who are graduating or have graduated in past years may make application for the Elliott and Elizabeth Richardson Memorial Scholarship, and/or the Frances R. Parker Memorial Scholarship.
These scholarships are available to those who are pursuing a higher education, have exhibited a potential for becoming a self-supporting and productive citizen, and are in need of financial assistance to make this possible.
