I want to let you know about three programs of importance to students and their parents. Even if you are not a student or parent, please look over the following information and pass it along to someone who could benefit from one of these programs.
Each year Maryland Senators and Delegates receive funds to award scholarships to students in their districts. I have heard from so many students who have shared that these legislative scholarships have made the difference in allowing them to pursue a higher education.
In order to be eligible for a District 39 Senatorial Scholarship, you must:
- be a resident of District 39 (to verify your District, click here)
- fill out the FAFSA form (click here for information on the FAFSA)
- be planning to attend a Maryland college or university
- fill out an application and return it to my office by April 15, 2012 (to obtain an application, please call my office at 301-858-3686 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
You can also obtain information about other scholarships, grants and loans available to Maryland students at the Maryland Higher Education website - www.mhec.state.md.us.
