The Charles Williams Scholarships for Excellence in Music and Visual Arts are awarded on an annual basis by the Trustees of The Concord Free Public Library Corporation.  

Steps to Submit an Application and Required Artistic Submissions

Step One:

If interested in submitting an application, send an email to Williams@CFPLCorp.org with your focus in the subject line (i.e. Music or Visual Arts).

This email will notify the Committee of your interest and they will send you a link to a Google folder to upload your artistic submission requirements.

If you have not received a response from us within three (3) business days, please contact Marcy Bouley Eckel at 978-318-3355.

Step Two:

To complete the Charles William Scholarship Application, click on the link below that applies to your interest. We STRONGLY suggest that you download the application in PDF format (see applications on left navigation), save down to a Word document and complete the application first in this format, then copy over your answers to the online Google form. This provides you with a final copy for your records. You must complete the application in one sitting as Google currently doesn't support the option of saving/returning to the form for additional input. Upon submission, you will receive a confirmation email from Williams@CFPLCorp.org.

Step Three:

Upload all required artistic submissions to your Google folder. Once you have successfully uploaded all of your files to the Google folder, kindly send us an email at Williams@CFPLCorp.org notifying us that your application submission is complete.

The deadline for scholarship applications is May 29, 2020. Online submissions must be received by May 29, 2020 and materials submitted by mail (if any) must be postmarked by May 29, 2020. Winners will be notified via email no later than Friday, June 19, 2020 unless otherwise specified by The Williams Committee. We hope to celebrate current and former Williams Scholars at a festive reception under the Rotunda at The Concord Free Public Library sometime this summer when the Library is once again open to the public and when such gatherings are possible.  Please continue to check the Library’s website for further details.

We STRONGLY suggest that you download the application in PDF format (see applications on left navigation), save down to a Word document and complete the application first in this format, then copy over your answers to the online Google form.
