2018-2019 State Senatorial Scholarship application is open for 29th District

Legal residents of the 29th Legislative District may apply to Senator Steve Waugh for a Senatorial Scholarship.  Completed applications will be accepted through March 30, 2018 for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Senatorial Scholarships may be awarded in addition to other State scholarships, including the Hope Scholarship. However, the total of all State scholarships awarded cannot exceed $14,000. Senator Waugh encourages students in his district to apply to other organizations for financial aid in addition to the Senatorial Scholarship.

Applications received by the March 30th deadline will be reviewed by a committee of community leaders and educators from the 29th District. All awards must be used at an eligible institution within the State of Maryland and by undergraduate, graduate, or professional students. If your major is not offered through a Maryland school, please visit the Maryland Higher Education Commission’s website at www.mhec.state.md.us for information on how to have your major declared unique.  Applicants are responsible for confirming they are residents of the 29th Legislative District.  Failure to do so will result in application not being considered.  To confirm your legislative District please visit www.mdelect.net.

Applicants who have been selected to receive a scholarship will be notified sometime in the month of June.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
