Richard Welch Memorial Scholarship
Presented by the Holyoke Democratic Committee

The Richard Welch Memorial Scholarship was started in 2003 as a tribute to honor long time Ward 4 City Councilor Richard Welch.

Dick Welch was a lifelong Democrat, who also served on the School Committee and previously was the chair of the Ward 4 Democratic Committee.

The Holyoke Democratic City Committee wishes to promote the ideals and vision of the Democratic Party in honoring our friend Dick Welch.

Each ward is represented on the Holyoke Democratic City Committee we work together with members from each ward in order to register voters and encourage them to exercise their right to vote.

We are proud to invite high school students to participate in applying for this important scholarship in honor of a great Democrat.
