Pilgrim Merit Scholarship Award
For the last 45 years, Pilgrim Skating Arena has awarded scholarships to deserving graduating high school seniors (boys and girls, skaters and non-skaters alike) through our merit-based scholarship program. Among the attributes considered by the Scholarship Committee are a student’s leadership, scholarship, athleticism, artistic capabilities, overall achievements, citizenship and contributions to school and community. Most years there are over 250 students who request scholarship applications.
As of June, 2020, Pilgrim has given out 537 scholarships totaling over $1,942,500.00.
No other ice rink in Massachusetts has engaged in the level of charitable giving that Pilgrim Skating Arena has.
