Bunny Libby Scholarship Fund

Giving the gift of recreation…

The Stowe Select Board approved a policy allowing funds to be raised for a Financial Assistance Program beginning in 2011. In December 2021, Ken Libby and his family made an endowment donation to establish the Bunny Libby Scholarship Fund in memory of Joan “Bunny” Libby and in recognition of her seventeen years of service on the Stowe Recreation Commission. Thank you to the Libby family for their generous donation which will help to provide recreation opportunities for Stowe families for years to come.

Bunny Libby was a long time resident of Stowe who could be found working as a nurse at the local emergency room, raising her family, and volunteering where the Town needed her most, including 17 years on the Stowe Recreation Committee, working with the American Red Cross and Mount Mansfield Ski Patrol and more. She also played a vital role in founding the Stowe Rescue Squad in 1975.

The Bunny Libby Scholarship Fund helps income eligible Stowe residents participate in recreation programs and community activities. Scholarships are awarded to Stowe residents on a first-come, first-serve basis for youth and adult programs in accordance with program availability, participant eligibility and available funds. A scholarship application must be completed for each participant and each program.  There is a $500 annual limit per individual.

Scholarship Application Form

To apply, a Scholarship Application must be submitted for each participant and each program prior to the program registration deadline. Applications can be emailed to recreation@stowevt.gov or sent to: Stowe Parks & Recreation, PO Box 730, Stowe VT 05672.
