Camilla Powers French Scholarship
The Belmont Historical Society established the Camilla Powers French Scholarship in 1985 to be awarded each year to an outstanding graduating senior from Belmont High School. Mrs. French was a long-time member of the Society and a strong advocate for its educational purpose. The amount of the annual scholarship was originally set at $1,000 and has been increased over time to reflect the growing cost of college education. For the past several years, the scholarship value has been $2,400. The recipient of the scholarship is selected each year by the Belmont High School. Occasionally the scholarship for a given year is divided among two students.
