The Henry O. Peabody School for Girls, operating under the will of Henry O. Peabody to carry on his progressive visions, has established a student aid program known as the Henry O. Peabody Scholarship Program. Awards will be made to women who live in Norfolk County, with first preference given to residents of the Town of Norwood, second preference being given to residents of other towns which have significantly supported the Henry O. Peabody School, and third preference being given to residents of other towns in Norfolk County. The purpose of the scholarship program will be to enable women to acquire an independent livelihood.
Awards will be given for students in vocational-technical programs, junior and community college programs, and four-year college programs.
