The Granby Democratic Town Committee (DTC) would like to thank Congressman John Larson for supporting it in offering a second $1,000 scholarship to recognize a Granby student who best exemplifies the DTC mission of making Granby a better community, and has demonstrated engagement in the political process.
This year, the DTC increased it’s annual scholarship from $500 to $1,000 due to increased community support. With Congressman Larson’s support this year, DTC will offer not one, but two scholarships to graduating Granby high school seniors going on to college.
To be eligible for the scholarship, the applicant must be a Granby resident, graduating from Granby Memorial High School in 2017 and registered to vote if age 17 or older. The scholarship will be awarded to a deserving student at GMHS Senior Awards night.
The scholarship application is online at dtc.ctdems.org/granby/ or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A copy of the application is also available at the Granby Memorial High School guidance office.
Deadline is May 12 to submit completed applications to the DTC or to the GMHS Guidance office.
