Graduates of the Housatonic School and residents of Housatonic pursuing a post-secondary education and prior Housatonic School Scholarship recipients.


The Housatonic School Scholarship was established by a group of local citizens after the Housatonic village school closed in 2003. The scholarship program is open to graduates of the Housatonic School and, in time, their descendants and residents of Housatonic in their pursuit of a post secondary education.

The mission of the scholarship program is to help keep alive the spirit of community that the Housatonic School (1906 – 2003) embodied. Started with seed money left from the Housatonic School PTO, the scholarship program continues the work of the school: helping the children of Housatonic to get the education they need while fostering in them the spirit of community to which the Housatonic School was so central. In 2005, the Fund received a $150,000 bequest from Jack and Betsy Cook who were longtime Housatonic residents. This bequest was used to create the Housatonic School Scholarship endowment at Berkshire Taconic. Contributions of any size to the Housatonic School Scholarship Fund are welcome.

Apply for this scholarship using our common application by March 15.
