Community 2000 Scholarship Mission
Community 2000 provides need-based scholarships for Charlestown, Hopkinton, and Richmond residents going on to college or technical schools.
Comunity 2000 has offered need-based scholarships since the spring of 2000. The Community 2000 Scholarship Endowment supports Chariho graduates and/or residents of Charlestown, Hopkinton and Richmond who are seeking additional college or technical training and can demonstrate at least a modest level of financial need. The endowment consists of multiple separate endowments that include the Quonnie segment (where Community 2000 originated, two memorial scholarships and several endowments aimed at funding scholarships in distinct career areas. Scholarship support is provided annually throughout a student's undergraduate career, i.e., for four years; or up to 5-6 years for majors such as pharmacy, engineering or physical therapy that typically require more than four years of education. In the 2020-2025 timeframe, the individual, annual scholarship amount is expected to be $2,000 for 32-35 annual scholarship winners (a pipeline of 8-9 freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and 4th to 6th year students).
