• The Duncan-Jenkins Trust

    The Duncan-Jenkins Trust was created and endowed in 2001 by the last will and testament of Sarah E. Jenkins of East Washington, New Hampshire. The purpose of the trust is to benefit the schools, staff and graduates of Washington and Hillsboro-Deering School Districts by adding enrichment above and beyond what taxpayers are expected to finance.

    The will states: "It is not my intention to . . . fund programs that would be otherwise funded from taxpayer dollars."

    Grant Application Guidelines

    Students entering college and those already in college can apply for a Duncan-Jenkins Scholarship by completing the Common Application for Local Scholarships. The Duncan-Jenkins Trust Grant Committee receives applications each year for a wide variety of programs, and with each application you have the opportunity to present the present the program in your own unique style.

    There is specific information requested on the applications that the Committee uses to determine whether or not the program meets the requirements set forth in Sally Jenkins' will. There is other requested information, such as budget information, that is equally important to the Committee in order to complete their review of the applications.

    Each applicant also has the opportunity to enthusiastically expand on the basic application with any additional details that may be relevant to the program or benefits of the program.
