Kevin’s Fund Scholarship Commitments

The Kevin M. Eidt Memorial Scholarship Fund currently supports nine annual scholarships specifically related to achievements in the areas in which Kevin excelled: six to Norwalk High School, two to Boston College, and one to the St. Jerome Youth Group.

The 2017 Scholarships for Norwalk High School are:

  1. $100,000 to a graduating senior, in the Kevin M. Eidt Chapter of the National Honor Society, in good standing and in the top 10% of their class with demonstrated achievements across the spectrum of academics, athletics, arts and community and religious service. The scholarship recipient is determined by the scholarship selection committee based on a submitted application and personal interview process. The presentation of this scholarship will be made at our annual Benefit Dinner Dance on April 8, 2017.
  2. $1,000 to the four year member of the Norwalk High School Marching Band, in good standing, with the highest cumulative grade point average, similar to Kevin's achievement. The recipient is determined by the Principal of Norwalk High School, or a designated representative, based on the standard grade point average formula used in the determination of official class ranking.
  3. $1,000 to a graduating senior in good standing at Norwalk High School who has made an outstanding contribution to the Jazz program.
  4. $1,000 to a graduating senior in good standing at Norwalk High School who has made an outstanding contribution to the Orchestra program.
  5. $1,000 to the Norwalk High School scholar-athlete who has made an outstanding contribution to the school both as a scholar and an athlete.

The 2017 Scholarships for Boston College are:

  1. The Boston College Carroll School of Management Honors Program scholarship is awarded to a junior who has demonstrated the unique combination of academic achievement, character, leadership, and school spirit similar to Kevin’s. The award is the sum of the Fund's $10,000 contribution and other third party contibutions. The total of the most recent award was $18,000. The recipient is selected by the faculty and administrators of the Honors Program.
  2. $2,000 to a Boston College freshman who has made an outstanding contribution to the Emerging Leader Program.

The $4,000 St. Jerome Youth Group scholarship is awarded to an individual with demonstrated commitment to community and religious service similar to Kevin's. The adult ministry team selects the recipient of this scholarship.

Beginning in 2015, to further the connection between Norwalk High School and Boston College Kevin’s Fund will offer a one-time $2,000 scholarship, (Kevin was in the BC Class of 2000), to each Norwalk High School senior who matriculates at Boston College.

From time to time the Fund awards special achievement scholarships for outstanding achievements in the areas of importance to Kevin in athletics, arts and community and religious service. In 2017 a $4,000 Community Service award in memory of former Fund Auction Chair Alexandra Sandor will be presented to a deserving senior who, similar to Alexandra and Kevin, gave of their time and talent in the service of others. These scholarships are determined by the Board of Directors based on information submitted for the Norwalk HS scholarship or for volunteers of Kevin’s Fund activities.
