University System of Maryland at Hagerstown to recognize scholarship recipients

June 24, 2011

HAGERSTOWN — The University System of Maryland at Hagerstown will recognize 16 scholarship recipients during an awards reception at USMH on June 28.

This is the first year that funds will be distributed from the Magnolia Foundation Scholarship Fund to benefit the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown.

This fund was established through the Community Foundation of Washington County to meet the Waltersdorf-Henson Endowment Challenge Campaign.

The fund contains money raised by the scholarship committee of the USMH Advisory Board to meet the challenge, the $212,500 match from the Waltersdorf-Henson Endowment and additional funds raised by the committee, bringing the total to nearly $500,000, the interest of which is being distributed in six named scholarships.

The scholarships are named for four local organizations that made major donations to the fund, including: the Washington County Board of Commissioners and Citicorp Credit Services Inc., with two scholarships each; the city of Hagerstown; and an anonymous donor funding the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) scholarship.

In addition, 10 students have been awarded scholarships from the USMH Scholarship Fund. Money in this fund was raised by the scholarship committee of the USMH Advisory Board through the Elizabethtowne Feaste and Frolic, the Cheers for 5 Years event and other fundraisers.

In order to qualify for any of the awards, applicants must have completed 64 credits and be enrolled in or starting a program offered at USMH. Along with the application, students submitted an essay, a letter of recommendation and college transcripts. The scholarship committee reviewed the applications and chose the award recipients.

Students chosen for the six named scholarships will receive $2,200, while the 10 USMH Scholarship recipients will be awarded $2,500.
