Tom Olen Memorial Fund Scholarship 

Thank you to all the applicants who applied for the 2023 Tom Olen Memorial Fund Scholarship. The aim of this scholarship is to offer financial support for college expenses to a graduating senior who has been directly affected by cancer. Once again, we are offering one $5,000.00 scholarship. We are looking to help a student who wants to make a positive impact on the world. The scholarship committee will select a recipient based on several factors including, but not limited to, financial need, medical hardship, dedication to community service, commitment to educational and professional goals, personality, creativity, and a testimony to his or her eligibility for this scholarship.

To qualify, the application must:

  • have confirmed attendance as an incoming undergraduate student at a fully accredited college or university in the United States, its possessions or territories

  • have a minimum GPA of 3.0

  • be a resident of Massachusetts

  • have been affected by cancer (this may include currently battling cancer, being a cancer survivor, having a parent, guardian, or sibling who is currently fighting cancer, or having lost a parent, guardian, or sibling to cancer)

  • submit a 350-word essay highlighting their experience with cancer and any future career/personal ambitions 

If you know anyone who may qualify for this scholarship, please share this opportunity with them!
