The Andy Abroms Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 1997 through a generous gift from Hal and Judy Abroms in memory of their son Andy Abroms ’77
. Scholarships awarded through the fund support our students’ participation in a wide variety of educational summer study programs.
To be considered, summer programs must last a minimum of five days and be sponsored by colleges, universities, and other reputable institutions that foster educational growth by offering math, science, and engineering camps, political and law programs, business, writing, music, dance, and theater company programs, foreign exchange and immersive language programs, museum programs, and student research and internship opportunities. Independently planned programs and service-learning programs are also eligible. Applicants are strongly advised to research and seek a program tailored to their interests and possible career paths. Scholarships are not awarded for outdoor leadership adventure programs or vacation-based travel.
Students currently in grades 9-11 are eligible to apply. Past Abroms Scholars are eligible to apply again.
The merits of the program, the student’s academic and citizenship records, and the financial impact on the student are considered by Indian Springs’ Abroms Scholarship Committee in making awards. Generally, grants range from $300 to $2,000 and are awarded based on cost, the scholarship applicant pool, the student’s financial need, and other factors. Grants above $2,000 will be considered based on the program’s cost and student needs.
All Abroms Scholarship recipients will be expected to present their summer study experiences reports to the entire school community and the Abroms family. Students will also be asked to provide photographs and an overview of their experience.
