The Cape Cod Foundation Awards $377,000 in Scholarships

YARMOUTHPORT A crowd of more than 250 gathered at the Dennis Inn on Thursday, June 18th to join The Cape Cod Foundation in celebrating their 2015 scholarship recipients and the people who make these awards possible. This year, the Foundation has awarded $376,991 in scholarships to 111 Cape Cod and Islands students. Their partner the Cape Cod Association, which is a supporting organization of The Cape Cod Foundation, has awarded $450,000 to nearly 300 Cape and Islands students; bringing the total awarded in scholarships between the two organizations to $826,991. The event was sponsored by The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod.

“We refer to our Scholarship Awards Reception as the best night of the year at the Foundation. We’re incredibly proud of the impact these awards have on our local students towards their pursuit of higher education. It’s inspiring to see the recipients interact with the donors who make these scholarship awards possible,” said Kristin O’Malley, Executive Director of The Cape Cod Foundation.

Chris OBrien, co-founder of Dative, a Cape-based, digital strategy firm, addressed the crowd and spoke of his experiences growing up in Falmouth and returning to the Cape after college to pursue his career. “Speaking to the scholarship recipients at the Cape Cod Foundation awards night is among the highlights of my career. It was great being able to tell my story to a group of very talented and motivated students. It was also humbling to see the reach and impact that the Foundation has on Cape Cod, all driven by their dedicated staff and generous donors,” said OBrien. He urged the scholarship recipients to take the first step towards their dreams by showing up for life every day. OBrien, who also serves as Vice President of the Board for the CCYP, took an opportunity to remind the crowd that success doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and the importance of utilizing the resources in your community, speaking to his own experience with the CCYP’s Mentor Exchange program.

Eileen Miskell, Chairman and President of the Board of Directors of the Foundation, echoed the thoughts of all those in attendance when addressing the recipients, “We are all rooting for you to continue your education, gain experience, and have a very happy and successful life!”
