The will provides that "Scholarship recipients shall be bona fide residents domiciled in Gloucester, Rockport and Essex, possessing, in addition to strong academic and moral qualifications, a firm commitment to the area of Cape Ann demonstrated insofar as possible by expressed intention and willingness to reside in the area after completion of their studies, practicing their professions, skills, business and talents within this community thus returning in some measure the benefits conferred upon them by this 'Trust'.
