Since 1947, the Sippican Woman’s Club has awarded scholarships to Marion students. The scholarships are funded by proceeds from the club’s Annual Holiday House Tour held in December. Any Marion resident who is currently a high school senior and who will attend an accredited college or university to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in the coming year is eligible. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities, community service and need.
In addition, two special scholarships are awarded: 1) The Lu Chevrier Scholarship is awarded to a high school senior with a particularly outstanding record of community service; and 2) the Alice Ryder Book Award is presented to the highest ranking English student in the middle school graduating class.
Fifteen scholarship awards have been awarded this year. In addition to the Alice Ryder Award, the following awards were given based on scholarship, service to the community, activities and need.

Continuing Education Students: Samantha Barrett, Madeline Cafarella, Maura Lonergan, Laura Mc Coy, Hannah Rose Olson, Colleen Packard, Kaitlyn Sethares, and Patrick Tracy
