A new scholarship program at Plymouth State University will focus on reaching students in the North Country.
A now-deceased descendant of one of the school’s original funders donated $1.5 million to the university. The gift provides for a scholarship fund that will help up to 20 students with financial need each year. Priority will be given to students from Coos, Grafton, and Carroll Counties.
Paula Lee Hobson with Plymouth State says the donor, Ann Haggart, had a special connection with the North Country.
