Abramson Scholarship Program

Description

The Abramson Scholarship Program offers two types of scholarships, a Full Scholarship and a Recognition Scholarship, with the distinguishing feature being the fact that students receiving the recognition awards have their financial needs met through other sources, but would benefit from the mentorship and peer support activities that are a part of the program. The Full Scholar Award amount is $2000, with the possibility of increasing awards for each subsequent year in the remaining three years of college. The Recognition Scholar Award amount is $1000. To be eligible, applicants must be graduating in 2023 from a public or charter high school located in the District of Columbia and have a demonstrated commitment to community service. Two letters of recommendation, one from a school counselor or teacher and one from another adult who is not related to you, are required. Please visit the scholarship's website for more information.
