The John Ledyard Scholarship Foundation

The JOHN LEDYARD Scholarship Foundation

The John Ledyard Scholarship Foundation was established in 1999 to honor college students who have dropped out at least once, and have travelled more than 2000 miles from home at least thrice in their lifetime.

John Ledyard was born and raised in Groton Connecticut a few years ago. A college dropout, Ledyard has travelled with Captain Cook, was friends with both Thomas Jefferson and Catherine the Great, and has had buildings, trains and outhouses named after him on 4 continents.

Needless to say he died a very famous man.

When you pass on from this lifetime, which scholarship will you treasuremost?

Ledyard's best friend was Ben Uncas, and he was quite the out-spoken anti-war activist.
