Scholarship Overview

An endowed scholarship established with the residual estate of Myra Fensterwald Meehan Doherty, Class of 1949, who died on March 27, 2004.

If a recipient or potential recipient is found to have violated the foregoing conditions, then they are to be or become ineligible to receive any funds.

Only the needy and deserving students who have a minimum "B" average, cumulative, and who continue to maintain the minimum of a "B" average will be eligible for the scholarship funds.
