AFCEA Central Maryland Scholarship Opportunity 2018-2019
Armed Forces Communications Electronics Association (AFCEA) Central Maryland Chapter is offering scholarship opportunities for Prince George’s County graduating high school seniors who are going on to a college or university in the Fall of 2019.
Two scholarships available:
1. The first is a Merit Scholarship that is based on how well the student has performed in high school. While there are several scholarships named for a variety of people that AFCEA has chosen to honor, there is only one merit scholarship application. The student does not pick the specific merit scholarship. The AFCEA Scholarship Committee determines which merit scholarship to award to each student that receives a merit scholarship. However, if the student is interested in a scholarship designed to study cyber, then their essay must address cyber.
2. The second scholarship is the Freedom Scholarship. This scholarship is based on an adversity or hardship that the student has had to overcome which may have prevented him/her from performing academically as well as expected. Please note that a school counselor must nominate the student for the Freedom Scholarship and must provide a letter detailing why they are nominating the student. This is separate from the required two letters of recommendation.
The deadline for these scholarship applications is December 21, 2018.
