    Can students who live in Washington Dc apply

    1. admin says:

      Our scholarship deadline is closed for 2013. It re-opens on January 1, 2014. Most of our scholarships are offered to Maryland residents. However, we do have several programs that are available to Washington DC residents. We encourage you to apply and we will screen you for multiple programs available to DC residents.

    I am a parent who is listed under alternate email address. If awarded, will I also receive that confirmation email? When are scholarships usually awarded. Thanks.

    1. admin says:

      Thanks for your question. Students should be sure to keep an eye on their email because we only use alternate email addresses in cases when the main e-mail address is not available. Scholarship decisions will be made by July 18th. Students should check their spam folder if they are not receiving notification from Central Scholarship by July 18th.
