Scholarship Awards Announcement

Written by sbrown Posted: 0 Comments

The University System of Maryland at Hagerstown (USMH) has announced the scholarship awardees for the 2017-2018 school year.

To qualify, students had to be currently enrolled or starting in programs at USMH. They also had to be at the junior level or higher and have a B or better grade point average. As part of the application, students submitted an official transcript, a letter of recommendation, and a short essay about their educational goals and service to others. A committee comprised of USMH staff and board members determined the recipients.

The general USMH scholarships are funded through the proceeds of various fundraisers that are held throughout the year including the annual Elizabethtowne Feaste and Frolic.

In addition, the Magnolia Foundation scholarships are a result of donations made through the Waltersdorf/Henson challenge grant campaign conducted by the Community Foundation of Washington County. The City of Hagerstown, Board of Washington County Commissioners, Citicorp, the estate of Florence Graff and an anonymous donor who supports STEM programs all made significant gifts to this fund resulting in named scholarships.

The following students from USMH’s partner institutions will be receiving scholarships (* indicates student has received a scholarship for the second year in a row):
