Grant Guidelines: Teddy Lee Drumm Scholarship Fund
The Teddy Lee Drumm Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by Ted and Buena Drumm to honor their son when he died unexpectedly at the age of 46 on October 4, 1999. The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarship support to Sharon youth in the pursuit of their post-secondary education. The scholarship is intended to support a student who is highly motivated to succeed in college and for whom the award will have a significant impact both personally and financially.
The goal of the Teddy Lee Drumm Memorial Scholarship is to provide scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are residents of Sharon, Connecticut, for at least four years and who are unlikely to have access to other scholarship resources because of average grades. We are looking for students who are motivated to pursue education at an accredited college, university, vocational-technical or professional institute in the United States and for whom this award will have a significant impact.
There is one award of $1,000 given each year. Additional awards are given as funding allows.
Scholarship recipients are eligible to reapply for funding provided they continue to meet the scholarship guidelines.
