It's Scholarship Time

GWL is dedicated to supporting many community organizations as well as awarding scholarships to deserving residents. 

Scholarships are given on a yearly basis and you may apply each year, whether or not you have previously been a recipient. 

Among scholarships that have been awarded:

Benjamin Riggs, Connie Donovan, Derecktor Robinhood Marine Center, Georgetown Working League, Island Carpentry, Georgetown Island Education Foundation, John & Nancy Calhoun, Josephine Hooker Shain, North End, Woodex Bearing Company

History of GWL Scholarships 

The first scholarship offered in Georgetown was in 1983 to honor Josephine Hooker Shain, one of the early summer residents, and later full time residents of the island. It was open to students attending 4 year schools and was awarded only after they had a successful first semester. In 1990, the Georgetown Working League decided to offer scholarships to students attending 2- year schools and vocational schools as well as 4-year schools. Woodex Bearing Co. expanded the program in 1994. From 2001 on, a variety of local businesses and residents increased the number of scholarships available to the eleven that are offered today.

*About our shop:  Georgetown Center is the hub of our island community. For many years the little building which will house our 2023 Quilt served as our small community's US Post Office.  In the last twenty years the space has been occupied by a darling shop called "ETC" run by Jim and Jean Summers.  Following that it was an art gallery featuring the works of Georgetown Artists. And now the owners have opened the Space to the Georgetown Working League.
