Since 1991, the Henry O. Peabody Scholarship program has provided scholarship assistance to women in and around Norfolk County, Massachusetts, pursuing college, university or technical education. Awards ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 are available to eligible students, based on financial need. 

Applicants must be female students who are graduating high school seniors, undergraduates, or seeking to return to school, and must be residents of Norfolk County, Brockton or Mansfield, Massachusetts. In addition, applicants must be enrolled or planning to enroll in a full or part-time course of undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.  

Women who are returning to school after a break or attending part-time are encouraged to apply. Awards are renewable up to three years on the basis of satisfactory academic performance and maintaining full or part-time enrollment.
