Geraldine Marshall Scholarship Fund: Call for Applicants!

APRIL 19, 2016, The North End Music Performance and Arts Center (NEMPAC) is honored to continue to offer the Geraldine Marshall Scholarship, and to preserve the legacy of a woman who loved children and the arts.  The Geraldine Marshall Scholarship Fund enters its second year of awarding two North End children, under the age of 18, with a full-year scholarship for music lessons or to participate in one of NEMPAC’s artistic programs.

The Geraldine Marshall Scholarship was established by her son, Representative Aaron Michlewitz.  Ms. Marshall, who passed away two years ago at the age of 68, was born in Dorchester in 1946, moved to the North End at the age of 21 and settled here for almost 50 years before her passing.

“My mother loved the North End so much,” said Representative Michlewitz. “But more than anything else, my mother loved giving children the opportunity to develop a love and appreciation for the arts. This scholarship in her honor will allow that passion of hers to carry on. I am extremely honored that NEMPAC would join with my family in this endeavor.”

In support of this Scholarship Fund, Michlewitz is hosting a Cornhole Tournament on Sunday, May 15th at the Living Room at 3:00 p.m. All proceeds will benefit NEMPAC and the Marshall Scholarship Fund. Additional donations to the Geraldine Marshall Scholarship Fund can be made online through NEMPAC’s website, http://www.nempacboston.org/donate or by check addressed to “NEMPAC”.

Students or parents of children interested in applying for the Marshall Scholarship should complete the downloadable application: Marshall Scholarship Application 2016. Completed applications are due no later than Friday, June 17th, 2016. Award decisions will be made and notified by August 1, 2016.
