The Gloucester Schooner Festival Scholarship Fund was started in 2012. The intention of the fund is to support local Cape Ann youth who intend to pursue a maritime career. Funds are garnered from the previous year's Schooner Festival proceeds and in part from a generous donation from the Girondelis Foundation. Students interested in applying can submit an application letter through through their guidance councilor or check back here for further details on the application process. Awards range from $500-$1000.
