This trust fund was established under the Will of Fred W. Wells. Mr. Wells, a former resident of Greenfield, directed that a portion of income from the fund be used for awarding scholarships in agricultural, mechanical or professional fields.

Awards, made by a Scholarship Committee, take into consideration, among other factors, academic record, need, character, leadership ability, extra-curricular activities and employment. Scholarship awards are contingent upon the applicant’s matriculation into an academic program. One thousand dollars will be the maximum award for any one year. Awards vary each year depending on available funds and number of applicants, and are not to exceed a maximum total of four thousand dollars over the course of an academic career.
