Rehoboth Antiquarian Society Awards Scholarships


The Rehoboth Antiquarian Society recently presented $1,000 scholarships to two worthy students. Madison Khan, a Seekonk resident, and Tulane University sophomore is majoring in history with a minor in archaeology. Vanessa Calouro, a Swansea resident, is enrolled in a graduate program at San Jose State University. Vanessa’s field of study is Library and Information Science. She is currently employed by the Bridgewater Public Library and has also worked part time at Rehoboth’s Blanding Library. Both young women have demonstrated outstanding scholarship in their respective fields of study. This year the RAS received an anonymous donation which allowed us to offer two $1,000 scholarships.

The RAS annually awards a second semester scholarship to one or more students accepted by, or enrolled in, a post-secondary or graduate program related to museum or library studies. History, archeology, anthropology, conservation, restoration, preservation, library science, and related fields are eligible for consideration. The award of up to $1,000 is a one-time commitment by the RAS. Applications must be received by Wednesday, June 15, 2022. Candidates will be interviewed during the last two weeks of June. The successful candidate or candidates will be announced in August. We encourage all eligible students who live in the greater Rehoboth area to apply. Additional information and an application may be found at the RAS scholarship website:
