The Euodias E. Parker Scholarships will provide $3,000 merit-based awards to two high-performing students in the fall of 2020. Her nieces and nephews created this fund to honor her legacy by providing opportunities for low-income students in Baltimore City to continue their pursuit of higher education.
The scholarship will create opportunities for high-performing students to tap much-needed funding, so that attending a four-year college can be attainable. These special awards encourage first generation college students, from economically challenged backgrounds, to pursue higher education and help level the playing field for inner city students.
One of the two awards will be earmarked for a Dunbar High School senior.
—Baltimore City resident; Baltimore City Public School student
—SAT/ACT scores will be considered
—Cumulative 3.0 grade-point average (GPA)
—Essay outlining career goals and aspirations
—Demonstrated involvement in extracurricular activities
—A letter of recommendation is strongly encouraged
The scholarship awards are open to students of all majors. A selection committee will review all applications and select the finalists.
Application Deadline: March 9, 2020 at midnight.
