2020 City of Cambridge Scholarship Recipients Announced

The City of Cambridge announced the recipients of the 2020 City of Cambridge Scholarship. Unfortunately, a ceremony to honor the winners could not be held this year due to the closure of city offices during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This year, the city awarded 79 scholarships of $3,000 each for a total $237,000 to Cambridge high school seniors and others pursuing higher education. Since the program’s inception in 1993, the city has awarded 1,108 scholarships totaling $2.6 million.

The City of Cambridge gratefully acknowledges the generous contributions of our residents and local businesses to the City of Cambridge Scholarship Fund. We especially want to thank Northern Trust, Divco West, and the Bruce Foundation for their significant contributions to the Scholarship Fund. Thanks also to our Scholarship Committee who volunteer their time year after year to carefully review the applications and select our recipients.

"We are so pleased to be able to assist 79 Cambridge families this year through the City Scholarship Fund,” said Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui and City Manager Louis A. DePasquale in a joint statement. “And although we cannot hold a ceremony this year to congratulate our recipients in person, know that we are very proud of all of you and wish you much success in your academic endeavours. We also want to thank our generous residents and corporate donors who support this fund year after year.”
