Scholarship Essay Contest
Consistent with our by-laws, the Swiss Society of Boston holds an essay contest periodically to provide an opportunity for our members to earn a $1,000 scholarship to be used to encourage or support their educational endeavors. An email is sent in springtime announcing the essay question which will also be posted here on our website. The deadline to submit essays is approximately 6 weeks after the notification, and winners are announced at our August 1st Celebration. For more information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
