About the Scholarships

A Community Scholarship Fund from The Alchemist

The Alchemist Opportunity Fund (originally the Duxbury-Waterbury Opportunity Fund) is a community scholarship fund created in 2013 for local students by The Alchemist. Jon and Jen Kimmich, the owners of The Alchemist Brewery in Waterbury & Stowe, have developed this as one of their ways to give back to our community. To date, scholarships have been awarded to 39 students.

Multi-year scholarships for technical training and college

The Alchemist Foundation is funding multi-year scholarships for graduating students from six local schools who meet certain criteria. It is their hope that over time, other local businesses and community members will join in to make it possible for every local graduate to get the skills and training they need for a successful career.

Scholarships are awarded in June.

Deadline & criteria for 2017 scholarship applications can be found here. Applications & instructions are posted here. The 2018 information will be posted in October.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Liz Schlegel, the Fund’s administrator.
