The Prince Henry Society, Fall River Chapter, is proud of its scholarship program which has assisted hundreds of academically talented Portuguese-American students from the Greater Fall River communities including Tiverton, Westport, Somerset, Swansea, and Seekonk in the pursuit of university and college educations.
Applicants are evaluated by the Scholarship Committee on a number of categories including scholastic achievement, participation in student and community activities, and an essay describing the manner in which their Portuguese heritage has influenced their lives. Over $400,000 in scholarship assistance provided by the Fall River Chapter has been provided to scholars who are now serving their communities in business leadership positions. In doing so, they reflect great credit upon themselves and the Portuguese heritage.
Applications for 2017 are available. The deadline is April 7.
