Edward P. Boland Scholarship Winners Announced

Edward P. Boland Scholarship Breakfast

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The annual Edward P. Boland Scholarships were awarded this morning at a breakfast at the Boland School on Armory Street in Springfield.

The scholarships are given each year to college-bound students in the Second Congressional District.

Awards are granted up to $2,500 and are intended for undergraduate students based upon their financial need, academic merit and extracurricular activities.

The Edward P. Boland Scholarship Fund is named for the late Congressman, who established it upon his retirement in 1988 from Congress.

The fund has awarded up to 20 scholarships each year since 1990 and has distributed more than $500,000 to more than 400 students from the Second District.
