The Deerfield Education Foundation
Eighth Grade Scholarship
Each year, the Deerfield Education Foundation seeks to award two $1,000 scholarships to an eighth grade student or group of students – one student or group each from Shepard and Caruso. The awards are given to students for their outstanding, self-motivated community service. That service could include reading to the elderly, helping younger students learn, or volunteering at an animal shelteror a nursing home. It can also be a one-time activity, alone or with a group – anything that helps to promote a better community.
