Dear Student,

To be eligible for a scholarship from Delegate Long you must live in the 6th legislative district, complete the FAFSA no later than March 1, 2018, and you must attend or plan to attend a Maryland college or university.

I have formed a scholarship committee comprised of educators, business owners, and parents. The scholarship committee selects the most qualified candidates based on the following criteria:

– The quality of the academic program which the applicant is currently taking
– The GPA of the applicant (minimum 3.0 GPA required)
– The scope of the extra-curricular activities of the applicant (includes school and community involvement as well as employment),and
– The quality and content of the essay

The deadline for submitting you application and supporting documentation is Saturday, April 1, 2018. All students will be notified as to the results of the Scholarship Committee’s review.

Good Luck with your studies. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
