If you have a member of the Class of 2019 at home, your fall weekends may be filled with campus visits and work on college applications. Don’t forget to put scholarship applications on the to-do list. The GCPS Foundation Fund is now accepting applications from members of the GCPS Class of 2019. Annually, the Foundation awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to GCPS seniors, funded through the support of local businesses and organizations and contributions from generous staff and community members. Last year, more than 130 graduating seniors earned $175,000 in district and school-specific scholarships administered through the Foundation. Find the 2019 GCPS Foundation Scholarship Catalog online. Scholarships range in value from $500 to $2,000 and most are one-time awards. The deadline for scholarships managed by the Foundation is Dec. 7. (All scholarship deadlines are included in the scholarship information and clearly noted on each application.) The Foundation will announce scholarship recipients in May.
