Mary Beth Burwood, Scholarship Officer


Mary Beth joined The Cape Cod Foundation as its Scholarship Officer in 2020.  She manages the entire scholarship program for the Foundation and our supporting organization, Cape Cod Association, which represents more than $1 million in annual scholarship support to residents of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. In addition to managing the administrative functions of the program, she is the primary relationship manager for scholarship fundholders, students, parents, schools, committee members, and volunteers.

Mary Beth grew up in Chelmsford, MA, and spent many summer days on Cape Cod. She earned her B.A. in Psychology from UMass Lowell. She has worked for several nonprofit organizations, focusing on education, volunteer programs, and fundraising initiatives. Prior to joining the team, she served as the Assistant Director of Regional Programs in the Office of Alumni and Donor Relations Office at UMass Lowell.

Mary Beth and her husband moved to West Barnstable with their daughter and dog in the summer of 2019 to be closer to family. Outside of work, she enjoys running, biking, and spending time outdoors.
