Scholars’ Fund – March – April

For more than 30 years the Scholars’ Fund has provided awards to assist eligible student employees with scholarship funds to support their education after graduation from high school. This is a wonderful way for residents to support students in their pursuit of higher education. Students who meet the criteria receive scholarships for college or other accredited educational institutions.

The Scholars’ Committee, chaired by Charlie Eichenlaub, manages the scholarship selection process and the Philanthropy Department manages the administration of the funds.

All gifts to the Scholars’ Fund are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Gifts may be made throughout the year, though the campaign runs annually, from March through April. For information on the current Scholars’ Fund campaign, see NEWS, below.

For any questions regarding the Scholars’ Fund please contact Lisa Zehring, Philanthropy Coordinator, at: (410)737-8838 ext. 8397 or
