The Henry O. Peabody School for Girls, operating under the will of Henry O. Peabody to carry on his progressive visions, has established a student aid program known as the Henry O. Peabody Scholarship Program. Awards will be made to women who live in Norfolk County, Massachusetts with first preference given to residents of the Town of Norwood, Massachusetts; second preference being given to residents of other towns which have significantly supported the Henry O. Peabody School; third preference being given to residents of other towns in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. The purpose of the scholarship program will be to enable women to acquire an independent livelihood.
Applicants must be women who are graduating high school students, undergraduates or those women who are seeking to return to a post-secondary school.

Applications from women who are receiving aid to families with dependent children or are displaced homemakers will be given special consideration.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals.
