Oak Grove offers scholarships

Apr 13, 2024

The Oak Grove Cape Verdean Cultural Center is now accepting scholarship applications for the Mary V. Rose annual scholarships. 

The scholarship is in honor of Mary V. Rose, a long-time resident of Onset and one of the founding members of the Oak Grove Cap Verdean Cultural Center. Rose passed away in May 2020 at the age of 105, and the scholarship honors her legacy as someone who dedicated her life to community welfare and promoted empowerment through education. 

The Scholarship Committee is offering two $1,000 scholarships to students who are accepted or enrolled at an accredited post-secondary school. The scholarship is open to students from all backgrounds and fields of study. 

Applications are available through the guidance office at Wareham High School. All applications must be submitted by May 4, 2024. 

Donations to the Scholarship Fund can be sent to the Oak Grove Cape Verdean Cultural Center Inc., P.O. Box 1100, Onset, MA, 02558.
