Through The Bill & Kathryn Matthews Memorial Fund, and the support of our generous donors, Berwick’s need-based financial aid program covers the full tuition for each Matthews Scholar. The financial aid awards will follow our Matthews Scholars through graduation.
Over the last several years, alumnus, Dick Shafner ‘65, and his wife, Janet Eustis, have made gifts to support the full tuition of one Matthews Scholar each academic year. Long-term financial sustainability of this program is not only a priority for Dick and Jan, but also a priority for Berwick Academy.
Beginning in December 2022, Dick and Jan have pledged a match of $250,000 over the next five years towards The Bill & Kathryn Matthews Memorial Fund. With the support of Dick and Jan and generous donors, this fund will grow to over $500,000 providing substantial support to this important program.
