The Cumberland Education Foundation Scholarship is awarded to a student accepted and committed to attending full-time, a 2 or 4-year college or technical institution. The Scholarship is based on three criteria:
academic performance, extracurricular activities/employment history, and volunteerism in the community.
We are pleased to announce that two $500 CEF scholarships will be awarded in 2020.
In addition, CEF will be presenting the Rose McCabe Hogue Memorial Scholarship. Rose McCabe Hogue was a lifelong resident and educator in Cumberland. She graduated from Rhode Island College in 1925. She taught at the Valley Falls School and Cumberland Hill School. An active volunteer, she worked with many adults to support development of job skills. She passed away at the age of 42 leaving a legacy of love for education among her progeny. This $1,000 scholarship is open to any qualifying student with preference given to those studying elementary education.
The application has passed. We will be announcing the recipients in May.
