Now Accepting Applications for the Geisinger Scholarship

Each year, Geisinger scholarships are made available to a Kerem Shalom high school senior as well as a Concord-Carlisle High School student who is not affiliated with the synagogue. The two awards recognize Ann Geisinger’s active volunteerism and commitment to both Kerem Shalom and her Concord community. 

The Ann Geisinger Memorial Fund is pleased to once again offer a $1,000 scholarship to a Kerem Shalom high school senior with a strong demonstrated commitment to the Jewish tradition of Tzedakah, or good works, through their community service and/or social justice engagement, and who plans to attend an institution of higher learning within two years of graduation. 

The deadline for submission is Friday, April 15, 2022. Applicants will be notified of the decision by May 2, 2022, and the scholarship award will be presented at Shabbat Services on Friday, May 13.

The 2020 Kerem Shalom Recipient of the Geisinger scholarship, Olivia Bowe-Shulman, volunteered at Emerson Hospital. She performed 80 hours of volunteer work transporting patients with kindness, empathy, and compassion. “I’ll never forget the gratitude the patients showed me for helping them out,” shares Olivia.
