Belvidere Heritage is proud to emphasize education in the work we do. We see local history and community engagement as integral parts of a lifetime of learning, and are honored to work with educators and students of all ages as volunteers, executive board members, scholarship recipients, and interns.
Bid to Educate Scholarships
Since the early years of the Victorian Days festival, the organizers have offered scholarships to senior high school students graduating from Belvidere High School. Scholarships are funded in part by the funds collected from House Tours and Porch Teas, as well as from generous donations. Our biggest source of scholarship funding comes from our Heritage Auction held every Victorian Days. Please see this page for more information on how to contribute to the Heritage Auction.
Professional Writing Internship
Belvidere Heritage is thrilled to announce that, starting in 2019, we will be continuing our work with students by offering an internship to Warren County college students. Inters can expect to gain hands-on experience by helping us maintain our website and social media, composing press releases and other public-facing communications, and contacting sponsors, vendors, entertainers, and other stakeholders in a range of professional writing situations. Although the internship is unpaid, the executive board is looking forward to working with students who would like to earn college credit for their internship.
