The Mary Rommel Scholarship Fund


The Mary Rommel Scholarship Fund has been created to encourage young people to pursue studies in either of these two areas: horticulture and the arts.


Mary Rommel was the founder of the Naval Officers Wives Garden Club in Newport, RI and was a prime mover in spurring an appreciation of nature in the community. She also was an early participant in formation of the annual Christmas in Newport for which she created the Turtle Frolic, a cultural/historical salute to the colonial period.


A lover of the arts in all forms, Mary Rommel touched many lives with her generous spirit and good heart.

This Scholarship honors a unique soul who gave selflessly to others and pays respect to what she loved most.

Scholarships will be based on available funds that have been donated. Awards will be made yearly. As the fund itself grows, so too will the funding level and number of awards.
