Educational Support

HCMV's mission includes interviewing local prospective students for Harvard University admission, representing Harvard at college fairs and providing scholarships for local Harvard students.  If you are interested in joining the interview process, please email Art Rousmaniere  

HCMV's academic support goes well beyond Harvard admissions.  We encourage excellence through recognition of local high school students with the Harvard Prize Book Award.  The Prize is awarded annually to selected Junior year H.S. students within our 16 towns and cities.  Enterprise Bank generously sponsors this effort.

The Club has recently embarked upon an ambitious program  to advise local high school students in their effort to gain admission to selective colleges and universities (Harvard and others).
