The Jill Carr Memorial Scholarship was created in 2017 by the parents of Jill Billings Peloso-Carr. Jill was born at Hancock Memorial Hospital in 1962 and spent her life in the Greenfield Community. Jill had a passion for food service so this scholarship was established to honor her memory and provide assistance to local students who wish to pursue a career in the food industry.
A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one individual living in the Hancock Health service area* and/or working for Hancock Health. Preference will be given to Hancock Health associates. To be eligible, applicants must be accepted into a food-related program, which may include, but is not limited to nutrition, food service, culinary arts, dietetics, or restaurant management. Financial need may also be considered when awarding this scholarship.
