Scholarship Initiatives

The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools, Inc., was created to provide support for continuous growth and success of Baltimore County Public Schools students and their families.  Our funds are designated to support district-wide initiatives (S.T.A.T. – Students and Teacher Accessing Tomorrow), and 21st Century Instructional Initiative Grants, focused on 21st Century themes and scholarships.

The Education Foundation works with generous philanthropic donors to provide encouragement to BCPS students to further their education and become lifelong learners.   Scholarships are provided to Baltimore County Public Schools students with the resources to attend post-secondary education facilities and obtain the knowledge and skills needed to be globally competitive.  Scholarships are provided through The Education Foundation Scholarship Program and The Education Foundation Private Scholarship Program.

The Education Foundation Scholarship Program

Two $1,000.00 scholarships are awarded annually to each comprehensive high school at the school’s award ceremony at the end of the school year. The focus for the scholarship funding will be on the following areas of BCPS Blueprint 2.0:  Business, Economic, Entrepreneurial, and Financial Literacy (BEEF) and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).  The competitive selection process will be based on student essay, academic performance (high school transcript), resume (including service), and 2 letters of reference (one character and one academic).

BCPS students who apply must meet the eligibility and qualifications:

  • Must be a current senior in a Baltimore County Public School
  • A minimum unweighted grade point average of 3.0
  • Provide verification of acceptance to an accredited two- or four-year college or technical school
  • Complete the scholarship application and personally write the Scholarship Application Essay
  • Must be a United States citizen or permanent resident

The selection committee will weigh all criteria – but will place more weight on the essay.  Those students who offer new applications of their learning that add value to the human experience will be given special consideration.   The application will be reviewed by The Education Foundation Scholarships and Allocations Committee or a designated subcommittee using a blind review process.  Recipient will be selected and recommended to the Foundation’s Executive Committee and the Board of Directors who will make the final decision.

Applications are now closed.  The link below contains the scholarship process and application for a STEM or BEEF Scholarship.
