Diana Vaughan Gibson Memorial Scholarship

The Diana Vaughan Gibson Memorial Scholarship, awarded to Hall-Dale students in grades 6-8 by Vaughan Woods & Historic Homestead, encourages and celebrates exploration of the arts, environmental stewardship, and global awareness through attendance at a summer learning program.

Diana is pictured above, 5th from the stern, in the Beaver Camp Varsity War Canoe in 1932. She was a lifelong supporter of outdoor recreation and educational programs and deeply connected to the Hallowell community. For over two decades, throughout the 1980s and 90s, she invited Hall-Dale students to visit her private home, the historic Vaughan Homestead, to learn about Maine History. Hall-Dale students continue to visit the Homestead now that it is a non-profit educational institution. Diana’s legacy is also honored by this scholarship for Hall-Dale students through VWHH.

Applications for 2017 are due on May 22. Please see submission information in the application materials below:
