"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family." - Kofi Annan
Everyone should have the opportunity to pursue higher education if they feel called to do so.
Unfortunately, as college costs continue to rise, it’s becoming impossible for many students to pay for college and pursue their dreams. Taking living expenses, tuition, and supplies into consideration, a single year of college in the United States costs over $35,000 on average, a price tag that isn’t feasible for students with limited financial resources.
This scholarship seeks to support students from the DMV area so they can complete their college degrees and launch their careers.
Any high school senior or two or four-year undergraduate student who is from the DMV area (D.C., Maryland, or Virginia) and has at least a 3.0 GPA may apply for this scholarship.
