Charles Eliot Scholarship

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council annually presents a scholarship award in memory of Charles W. Eliot II. Mr. Eliot was an advocate of local planning as part of regional cooperation, and he was especially interested in land use planning as it affected transportation (coordination of trains, buses, cars, bicycles, and pedestrians), the need for communities to balance residential, business and open space, and the role of planning to solve modern problems (like today’s climate change). This scholarship is open to any senior in a secondary school in the 101 cities and towns of the MAPC region, who is planning to further his/her/their education in these fields. A cash prize of at least $500 will be awarded in the form of a scholarship to the school of the recipient's choice.
