Applications Now Available for BGE Scholarships

30 Jan

 

Applications for the BGE Scholars Award are now available online through April 1.  The nine new scholarships are part of BGE’s legacy gifts that marked the company’s 200th anniversary last year. Central Scholarship, a Baltimore-based nonprofit, is administering the scholarship program on BGE’s behalf.

“We view this scholarship program as another way for BGE to support the development of our local workforce, by providing individuals with the means to successfully compete for opportunities,” said Valencia McClure, BGE’s vice president of Governmental, External Affairs and Corporate Relations. “We are honored to partner with Central Scholarship to help people receive an education that will lead to the future he or she envisions.”  The merit-based scholarships provide eligible students with awards of up to $5,000 each year to support post-secondary students pursue their educational goals. BGE Scholars will demonstrate academic excellence and share BGE’s commitment to serving the communities where they live and work.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be BGE customers or dependents of BGE customers
  • Be accepted to attend or currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or post-secondary program, including vocational programs
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Demonstrate service and commitment to community, civic or related organizations
  • Not be employed by, or related to a person employed by, BGE
