Letter from the Education Committee

Dear Applicant,

Below you will find an application for the Joan Beaudry Memorial Education Award.  The application, essay and letters of recommendation are due no later than June 1st.  An original copy of a certified transcript must be received by June 30th (extended to July 15th). The application and supporting documents can be mailed to Tracy Callahan 31 Warren St. Charlestown, MA 02129 or emailed to gtfamily@comcast.net The transcript must be mailed directly from your school to the address above..

Once all the information has been received, you will be notified that your application has been accepted for the interview process.  You will be contacted to set up an interview which will take place in July or August.

When the application review and interview process has been completed, you will be notified of the board’s decision by letter in October, at which time you will be told the amount of the reward (no greater than $1000).  The award will be mailed out after you have successfully completed the fall semester.  In January, it is your responsibility to contact us and provide a copy of your transcript with a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA.

Applicants who fail to meet these deadlines will not be considered for an award and will need to submit another application for consideration the following year.  Applicants may reapply as many times as they are eligible.

Each award recipient is required to give back to BPCC by doing at least 2 hours of community service in the Biddeford Pool area. A list of some possible volunteer opportunities can be found below on this page.

Thank you for your interest in the Joan Beaudry Memorial Education Award.  We look forward to meeting you. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
