The North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) is honored to continue to offer the Geraldine Marshall Scholarship, and to preserve the legacy of a woman who loved children and the arts. The Geraldine Marshall Scholarship Fund enters its fourth year of awarding four North End children, under the age of 18, with a full-year scholarship to participate in music lessons or one of NEMPAC’s artistic programs.
This past May, State Rep. Michlewitz hosted the 3rd North End Corn-hole Classic to support the fund. The event continues to generate so much support from neighborhood businesses and supporters. Please see a list below of sponsors and donors of the event this year who contribute to this fund. Truly, these donors help us to continue supporting youth music scholarships!
“My mother had a passion for the arts and for providing opportunity for children to experience the arts. I want to thank NEMPAC and everyone who helped turn this dream of a scholarship fund in honor of my mother into a reality. Increasing our scholarships from 2 to 4 children this year is a direct result of everyone’s support.” said State Representative Michlewitz.
The Geraldine Marshall Scholarship was established by her son, Representative Aaron Michlewitz. Ms. Marshall, who passed away two years ago at the age of 68, was born in Dorchester in 1946, moved to the North End at the age of 21 and settled here for almost 50 years before her passing.
Students or parents of children interested in applying for the Marshall Scholarship should complete and submit an application (available here or at www.nempacboston.org or by contacting 617-227-2270). Completed applications are due no later than August 27th 2018. Award decisions will be made and notified by September 10th, 2018. Please email contact us with any questions.
