The Paul M. Gervais Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Gervais family in concert with the Worcester Education Development Foundation in memory of their beloved family member who passed away in May of 2013.
Paul, a well respected local businessman and owner of Kurlan Music, provided musical equipment and lessons to people throughout our area. A graduate of Doherty Memorial High School class of 1973, Paul’s goal was to serve the community, fostering a love of music and aptitude for so many.
Paul’s family, friends, and colleagues in the music community have established this annual $1,000 scholarship for graduating seniors to ensure that his legacy of support for the arts and outreach to talented students continues.
Paul truly believed that talent of this nature was a gift that needs nurturing and guidance to evolve.
Students interested in applying for the scholarship must complete an application, adding two letters of recommendation, a paragraph describing why you are deserving of this scholarship, and your high school transcript.
