MARION — The Sippican Historical Society is seeking applicants for its annual Judith Westlund Rosbe History Scholarship. The scholarship was established to promote the mission of the Sippican Historical Society: to preserve three centuries of Marion’s unique history and build community by fostering an interest in its cultural and architectural legacy.

The $1,250 scholarship is awarded annually to a senior at Old Rochester Regional High School who lives in Marion and hopes to study history at the college/university level. Eligible applicants should submit a  paper, with a minimum of 800 words, or project on a historical topic. Evidence of research in the Sippican Historical Society archives is particularly desirable. Local history topics are especially interesting to the scholarship committee.

Applicants should also submit a recommendation from an ORR history teacher and a completed information form that can be found at
