THE CHESTNUT FAMILY

College Scholarship Fund

The Chestnut Family College Scholarship Fund was started in 2021 with the generous support of the Chestnut Family Foundation to aid AMP Seniors and Alumni in paying for college.

Each year both graduating high school seniors and alumni attending a four-year college or university can apply to receive funding to support the costs of their college tuition, fees, books, supplies, housing, and living expenses.

Applications will first be reviewed by the AMP staff to confirm eligibility and successful application completion. Applications will then be reviewed by a panel of AMP associates including board members, parents/guardians, students, and teaching artists. The panel will then make award recommendations.

Preference will be given to students who have been involved with AMP uninterrupted throughout high school and/or are active members of the AMP community.

• AMP Alum from the class of 2019, 2020, or 2021 currently enrolled in a 4-year college or university
