The amount of each award varies annually. In 2016, it is anticipated that approximately $45,000 will be available for awards made through this program. All awards are non-renewable.
The number of awards offered varies annually. It is the intention of the fund to make a few awards of significant size rather than many smaller awards.
Bernice Perry, a pioneer aviator, photographer and long-time area resident created this scholarship. Students must be motivated and demonstrate potential for success in their chosen field. Other factors used to evaluate candidates will include: involvement in school and community life, voluntary service, exceptional commitment to an activity or endeavor, and financial need. However, first preference in choosing recipients is given to those students who are residents of Wilton and have attended a local public or private high school. A small number of finalists may be invited for a face-to-face interview in April in Wilton, NH. No other date will be scheduled for interviews. Final award decisions are made in April.
