Applications, Donations Sought for CHARACTER COUNTS! Scholarship Program - Gaithersburg, Maryland 

High school seniors who are residents of the City of Gaithersburg are encouraged to apply for a W. Edward Bohrer, Jr. Memorial CHARACTER COUNTS! Scholarship.  Since the program’s inception in 1998, 59 high school seniors have received more than $125,000 to help with their continuing education costs.

CHARACTER COUNTS! Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the City of Gaithersburg’s Educational Enrichment Committee, and are based on the embodiment of the Six Pillars of Character, personal merit, financial need, and the student’s commitment to further education.   Previous scholarship awards have ranged from $1,500 to $3,000 each.  Applications are available through school guidance counselors, principals, senior class sponsors, and online below.  The deadline for application is 4 p.m. on Friday, April 27, 2012.

This program is funded in part by the W. Edward Bohrer Memorial Fund, DRS Signal Solutions and Rodgers Consulting, Inc.   Individuals, businesses and organizations within the Gaithersburg community are also invited to acknowledge and support the character development of our young people by making a contribution to this fund.  For information please contact the Gaithersburg Community Services Division at 301-258-6395 ext. 3.

Hi Roy,

Great localism post. How wonderful of you to highlight this program with a head start for deserving youth. With the high cost of education, this will provide some powerful incentive.

It is sometimes good to revisit old blogs and reblogs. We might even find some good ideas for new posts.
