This year, two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to qualifying high school seniors or students with equivalent education credentials. To be eligible, students must be from Androscoggin, Franklin, Oxford or Kennebec counties and have plans to enroll in post-secondary studies with a history component upon high school graduation.
Qualifying students must submit a 500-word essay titled “HISTORY IS…” to Norlands by June 30. A selection committee will begin the review process in July and award recipients will be notified by Aug. 15.
Norlands’ Gammon History Education Scholarship Fund was established in 2010 in honor of founder Ethel “Billie” Gammon’s enthusiasm for learning and sharing history. Gammon had a strong vision and the “bottomless well of energy & joy” to bring that vision to life. In 1973, she founded Norlands as a site where all visitors could learn about the past through real-life experiences. Gammon developed the foundational curricula for the renowned Norlands school programs that continue to spark the imaginations of thousands of school children each year.
