- Scholarship Description
A perpetual Scholarship Fund, organized by the Arc of Cape Cod, was started in memory of Edward and Lorraine O'Neill. Ed was a long-time Board member and volunteer with The Arc of Cape Cod. Lorraine served as a Resource Parent for the Arc and in this role became a friend to many parents of children with developmental disabitities on Cape Cod. Mr. and Mrs. O'Neill, the parents of a child with developmental disabilities, were always available for advice and counseling to parents who were adjusting to a family member with a developmental disability. This Scholarship Fund enables their memory and example to live on and serve as a reminder of their kindness and ability. The Scholarship Fund is available to residents of Barnstable County, MA (Cape Cod) who are high school graduates or college students planning to work with children or adults with developmental disabilities. This may be as a teacher, a therapist, or some other related helping field. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
