The Brendan Grant Scholarship
The Brendan Grant Scholarship was established on 28 June 2001 to honor the memory of Brendan Peter Anthony Grant of Belmont, Massachusetts, USA.
Brendan was a life-long resident of Belmont, and he touched many people during his nearly 19 years with us. Through his sincere passion for life and his smiling spirit, he taught us that life is indeed precious. Brendan was a person who knew how to live his dreams, and foremost among his dreams was his ability to excel in sports, and especially the sport of baseball.
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial assistance to qualified
students graduating from Belmont High School, located in Belmont Massachusetts, and who
will be attending an institution of higher education. Preference will be given to
individuals who have a demonstrated need.
A plaque is presented to each scholarship recipient at the Belmont High School Senior Assembly near the completion of the school year. The plaque incorporates various subtle themes that are intended to be representative of Brendan, and likewise intended to provide a reflection of the positive traits and characteristics of the award winners. In particular, the style is one that is intentionally modest and unpretentious, yet functional, durable and highly dependable. The streamlined acrylic provides a clear symbol of purity and transparency, with a design that is simple and honest in character. These are traits that Brendan exemplified during his time with us.
