2021 Cahill Scholarship Fund Information


Cahill Black Point Education Fund Information and directions for 2021 applicants:

1. The Fund and the scholarship selection process is administered by CFECT. Reports on the Fund are provided to us on a regular basis.

2. The 2011 Black Point Advisory Members became Advisors to CFECT and will solicit interested parties about becoming future Advisory Members. CFECT would like to keep the number of Advisors to no more than five. The Advisors will help CFECT with communications to the membership and the solicitation of Black Point judges to score the essays as well as to continue its fundraising efforts to grow the Fund.

3. The deadline for applications is 5:00 pm on March 29, 2021. The online application is generally available on CFECT’s website by early February each year. Applicants who are seniors in high school or who are attending a post-secondary institution and who have not won a scholarship previously from the Fund may go online  to access the application. The award recipients will be announced at the Annual Meeting in May each year.  Apply here

***Please note: application link is now live***

4. The essay question will be to state the significance of Black Point Beach in the applicant’s life. CFECT endorses the simplicity and community feel of an essay about the Beach Association, distinguishing it from other awards. As is the case now, there will not be any consideration that the award be based on academics, extracurricular activities or financial need. The CFECT has its own basic application form which may require information for their compliance but the bottom line is that the blind essay will be the main component of the Cahill Black Point Education Fund selection process. The applicant must ensure (a) graduation from high school in good standing and (b) attendance at an accredited post-secondary institution (and it will be limited to undergraduate studies). As in the past, there will be at least two winners each year.

5. The requirement that you must be an owner, child of an owner, grandchild or great-grandchild (i.e. direct descendant) of a property owner/ member in Black Point remains.

6. Advisors to CFECT and Association members are responsible for fundraising for the Fund, such as running the golf tournament or any other fundraising activities as deemed appropriate.

7. Wendy Bourget will solicit Black Point Members to be judges of the essays.  If you are interested in being a judge, please contact Wendy at whbourget@aol.comThe requirement that a judge cannot have an affiliation to an applicant will remain. CFECT will handle all paperwork, notify the winners of their award, and notify Black Point Advisors.

8. CFECT will manage the money, administration, and send letters for all tax-deductible gifts to donors.

9. CFECT will notify winners and mail the checks directly to their educational institutions to get applied to tuition or expenses.

Below are the essay requirements that will remain in place with the CFECT:

The CFECT application requires a range of information including the applicant’s Name, Home Address, Phone Number (home or mobile), Black Point Address, Name of member at BPBC (you must be a direct descendant, owner, child, grandchild, great-grandchild, etc), Name of high school attended and the name of the accredited post-secondary institution where student plans to attend full-time.

Blind Essay Rules
Length: 500 words (minimum).
Do not mention your name or any names in the essay; you can say, for example, my father, my sister, but we do not want to be able to identify the applicant by the essay.
Essays are judged on content, writing style, syntax and grammar.
Essays are reviewed and judged by a five (or more) person panel of BPBC members who are not on the Board of the Fund and who do not know the names of any of the applicants to ensure fairness and objectivity. The judges read all of the essays and score each one; the top two scorers will receive scholarships. If you are a previous winner, you may not apply for an award.

We also require that the applicant attest that they are the sole author of the essay.
