The Chinese Historical Society of New England ("CHSNE") and the Boston Harborside Home of J.S. Waterman & Sons-Waring-Langone Funeral Home announce the annual CHSNE/Waterman & Sons-Waring-Langone Scholarship competition for 2009. Two Scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors of Chinese ancestry entering a New England college in the fall of 2009. Each Scholarship is $500 per year. If the recipient maintains full-time enrollment in good standing, he/she will be awarded $500 each year following the initial award year for up to a total of four award years ($2,000 maximum).
The CHSNE/Waterman & Sons-Waring-Langone Scholarship was established in 1994 to encourage students of Chinese ancestry to become well versed in their heritage and to contribute to the continuing development of their community.
CHSNE's mission is to document, preserve and promote the history and legacy of the Chinese in New England. Boston's Harborside Home of J.S. Waterman & Sons-Waring-Langone Funeral Home, located at 580 Commercial St. in Boston's North End, supports CHSNE's mission by funding the Scholarship in its entirety, and thanks the Chinese community for its loyal patronage over the years.
