CRESCENT CITIES CHARITIES, INC.
SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION GUIDELINES
In 1999, Crescent Cities Charities, Inc. was established as a 501(c)(3) organization for the purpose of operating the Crescent Cities Center Nursing Home in Riverdale Park, MD. After nearly 20 years of successful operation it had been sold to another operator.
To that end, we have set aside some of these proceeds to provide scholarships to deserving students in the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area. Applications must be submitted on-line by May 1, 2020 to cccharities.org and recipients will be notified by June 1, 2020.
Crescent Cities Charities is committed to award about 150 scholarships in amounts from $1,000 to $2,500 in 2020 and hope to budget even more scholarships in future years. In the 2019-year, Crescent Cities Charities awarded 55 scholarships at $2,500 each, totaling $137,500. We welcome you to apply for one of this year’s scholarships. You are eligible if:
You are graduating from High School in the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area in 2020 with a minimum GPA of 3.0
You have a record of scholastic and other achievement
You have demonstrated good leadership qualities and community involvement
You will be enrolled in any undergraduate degree or certificate program in any area of study at an accredited college or university
Preference may be given to students with financial need
Scholarship awards are made on a competitive basis. Decisions of our selection committee are final. All scholarship awards are paid directly to the College the recipient will be attending.
