Scholarship Program Suspended
We have honored one of our past members with an essay contest for Chelmsford High School seniors. The scholarship was funded by our treasury and by gifts from some very generous members. Due to the passing of more members of our ranks, the lack of essay competitors, and the financial aspects, we feel it is best to move on. We treasure our members.

The scholarship is a $750 cash award that is given each year to a high school senior who is a Chelmsford resident and is attending college in the fall.
“The Chelmsford Republican Town Committee received many applications for the 2017 Maxine Vaitses Memorial Scholarship this year, and all of the applications and essays were terrific. It was a really tough decision to choose a winner,” said Dee Miller, Secretary and member of the Scholarship Committee. However Jacob Davis’ application really impressed the Scholarship Committee. His essay was on why he believes the First Amendment is the most important Bill of Rights Amendment to the Constitution. Click here to read Jacob’s essay: Maxine Vaitses Memorial Scholarship Essay
