Hugh and Elizabeth Montgomery Scholarship Fund

Both Elizabeth (Betty) and Hugh Montgomery had their roots in Phillips, Maine. Betty was born in Phillips and attended schools there and Hugh summered there in the old farm house that belonged in his family. They both went to college, Betty to Simmons and Hugh to Harvard, and pursued careers as librarians. Their wish was that this fund would provide the opportunity for deserving students of Franklin County to receive financial assistance towards furthering their education. This renewable scholarship supports residents of Franklin County who are adult learners (students who are beyond high-school age) returning to school to continue their education at the post-secondary level. There is preference for students for whom a scholarship would make a significant difference in their ability to attend school. First-time applicants need not be enrolled in a degree-granting program but are encouraged to make that commitment before applying for renewal consideration.
