The Harold Glen and Audrey G. Benson Trumpower Foundation Scholarship Fund has awarded scholarships to 67 Carroll County residents, including both current and previous graduates. Click here to view the list of recipients.
The Scholarship Fund is funded by the Trumpower Foundation, which was established with the Community Foundation of Frederick County. The fund’s purpose is to provide scholarships to residents of Carroll County. The scholarships support students who exceed the maximum income threshold for government financial aid programs but who still have financial need or lack resources to pay for their education. Scholarships will not replace financial aid packages provided by the government or private sources, but will add to or complement other financial aid sources.
The scholarships include two-and four-year colleges and trade and technical schools, as well as non-credit certificate programs. These programs include but are not limited to assisted living manager, cybersecurity, certified clinical medical assistant, dental assistant, and emergency medical technician, among other areas of study. Preference is given to students who previously received the scholarship after the first year for up to an additional three years of financial support for a maximum total support of four years, pending the student maintaining a 2.0 grade point average or higher and continuing to meet the scholarship requirements.
