Haddie Scholarship Fund

Applications for $50 scholarships for 2017-18 are available!

The Haddie Scholarship makes Community Education classes more accessible to older adults living and learning with limited income.


  • Any adult age 55 or older who can demonstrate financial need should apply! 

  • All scholarships for 2017-18 have a $50 value.

  • If awarded for 2017-18, the Haddie Scholarship remains in place for all terms through Summer 2018. Terms are Fall I, Fall II, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Scholarship may be used once per student per term.

  • Each $50 scholarship will be applied in advance of a student’s enrollment in an ESCOM/EC College of Marin Community Education class. (If a class costs more than $50, the student will pay the remainder of the course fee.)

  • All scholarship recipients will also receive ESCOM membership, applied to new membership or at time of renewal.
