Since Mrs. Phillips awarded the first scholarships in 1991, over $64 million in awards has been given to more than 4,100 students who attended colleges all across the country. In 2019, the Phillips Scholarship Fund awarded 160 new scholarships ranging from $3,000 to $17,000 annually. This year, the Phillips Scholarship Fund has awarded over $3 million to students to assist them with their college bills. Prospective applicants must be permanent residents of New England but may attend college anywhere in the United States. High school seniors entering college and returning college students attending accredited U.S. colleges or universities full-time are eligible to apply for the scholarship. Awards are limited to students in undergraduate study and to those seeking their first bachelor’s degree.
