College Park Scholars is committed to supporting student growth and learning opportunities… and you can help! A generous donation to either the Scholars Legacy Fund or the Kenneth A. Joseph Memorial Endowed Scholarship will make a difference for a Scholars student seeking to make the most of their time at the University of Maryland.
Any amount—whether it’s $25, $100, $500, $1,000 or $10,000—makes a difference for our students. Thank you.
Scholars Legacy Fund
From a student’s first day, College Park Scholars demonstrates a commitment to transformative learning on and off campus. Too often $500 or $1,000 prevents a student from accepting the once-in-a-lifetime chance to study abroad or participate in a valuable internship.
The College Park Scholars 20th Anniversary Legacy Fund ensures that every Scholars student, regardless of financial circumstances, can take advantage of all that Scholars has to offer by participating in an exciting internship, study abroad opportunity, or research activity.
Your contribution to the 20th Anniversary Legacy Fund offers students life-changing opportunities. Every donation, at every level, is needed to build this endowed fund.
Help us grow the strongest College Park Scholars community possible. Give today!
Kenneth A. Joseph Memorial Endowed Scholarship
Ken Joseph was a beloved mentor and colleague who worked at College Park Scholars from 1999 until his death in 2009. He was assistant director on the central staff as well as associate director for the Media, Self and Society Scholars program.
The Kenneth A. Joseph Memorial Endowed Scholarship was established in Joseph’s honor by his family.
This need-based scholarship will be awarded to a first-year student in the Scholars program, with a possibility for an extension into the student’s sophomore year. Preference will be given to students from Prince George’s County and Baltimore County in Maryland, and Washington, DC. The first scholarship will be given in fall 2019.
You can keep Joseph’s legacy alive, and support the next generation of Scholars students, with a donation to the Kenneth A. Joseph Memorial Endowed Scholarship.
