The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce's Businesswomen’s Committee has established this scholarship to help Cape Ann area women achieve their continuing education and career goals. Carolyn O’Connor was the first chairperson of the Businesswomen’s Committee, a community activist and a previous member of the Gloucester City Council. This scholarship honors her dedication to and involvement with the Businesswomen and the Chamber over the years. Organized in 1986, the Businesswomen’s group is committed to the growth of Cape Ann businesses and the professional development of the Chamber’s women members.
Among the many activities and events sponsored by The Marblehead Festival of Arts over the course of the year, the Festival is particularly proud to support our community by awarding a scholarship to a deserving student who resides or attends school in Marblehead. The Scholarship Committee is now accepting applications for the Art Scholarship Award.
