William Welles Award
The William Welles Award was established in memory of William Bouton Welles, Class of 1971. Third and Fourth Form students are invited to submit a proposal for a summer project they would like to undertake. The amount of the award depends on the proposal submitted, but can be as much as $3000. The work should be a project, research, or writing, which meets a high standard of excellence and promise. In the past, students have used their awards to travel and study in such places as China, Ghana, or Arizona. Others have worked on projects closer to home. The expectation is that the award will enable students to undertake interesting and productive independent study in areas of special interest.
