FREDERICK, MD – February 24, 2021: Carroll County residents pursuing post-secondary education will be able to apply for The Harold Glen and Audrey G. Benson Trumpower Foundation Scholarship beginning Monday, March 1, 2021. The completed application with required attachments must be submitted online no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. The scholarship is for the 2021-2022 academic year.
The Harold Glen and Audrey G. Benson Trumpower Foundation Scholarship Fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Frederick County. Founded by the Trumpower Foundation, the fund’s purpose is to provide scholarships to Carroll County, Maryland residents. The scholarships support students who exceed the maximum income threshold for government financial aid programs but who still have financial need or lack resources to pay for their education. Scholarships will not replace financial aid packages provided by the government or private sources but will add to or compliment other financial aid sources.
The scholarships are intended to include two-and four-year colleges and trade and technical schools, as well as non-credit certificate programs. These programs include but are not limited to assisted living manager, cybersecurity, certified clinical medical assistant, dental assistant, and emergency medical technician, among other areas of study. Preference will be given to students who previously received the scholarship for up to an additional three years of financial support for a maximum total support of four years, pending the student maintains a 2.0 grade point average or higher and continues to meet the scholarship requirements.
Details about the scholarship and the application are accessible through the Community Foundation website at www.FrederickCountyGives.org/Trumpower.
