Falmouth is a unique community. It can be described by its geography, villages, and proximity to the ocean. But communities are also about shared interests, actions, practices, or circumstances. We belong to many communities: teams, bands, clubs, neighborhoods, religious, cultural or heritage groups; any collection of people. We want to know about one of the communities to which you belong.

Choose one of your communities and describe it:
• What is your community about?
• How did you become involved?
• Why is it important to you?
• How has it shaped you?

Essays must be a minimum of 250 and a maximum of 500 words.

“Thank you so much for granting me the Albert Hamlin Malzan Memorial Scholarship.  I will be attending the University of Vermont this fall, pursuing a degree in biology.  I am also considering the possibility of attending medical school after graduating.  Your generous gift will be extremely instrumental in helping me to achieve these goals.”
