FCBA Foundation 2018 College Scholarship Program: Application Now Available

The FCBA Foundation is gearing up for its 2018 College Scholarship Program, which provides financial assistance and laptop computers to DC public high school students to assist them in attending college.  For over 26 years, the Foundation has helped over 242 local high school students attend college with scholarship awards ranging from several thousand dollars up to $28,000, payable over four years.

The Foundation committed $267,000 to its 2017 scholarship class via scholarships of between $8,000 and $28,000 to graduating seniors who were selected because of their academic achievements and service to school and community.  The Foundation reviewed applications from high school students of diverse backgrounds with an interest in communications-related fields, including media, journalism, technology, engineering, or law. Thirty-two high school student applicants were interviewed and 22 of these were chosen to receive FCBA Foundation scholarship assistance funded over four years. Our scholarship recipients this year came from 11 local public high schools:  Benjamin Banneker, Columbia Heights Educational Campus, Calvin Coolidge, Eastern, H.D. Woodson, McKinley, Roosevelt, School Without Walls, Thurgood Marshall, Washington Latin, and Woodrow Wilson.

The Foundation’s updated web-based application lets interested high school seniors, who are matriculating to college next fall, apply for a scholarship online.  The application is available at https://webportalapp.com/appform/fcbacollegescholarship.

The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, February 23, 2018.  The Foundation plans to conduct interviews of promising applicants during the week of April 23, 2018.  We will notify successful applicants regarding their scholarship awards by early May 2018.

If you have any questions about the application or the FCBA Foundation College Scholarship program, please contact the FCBA at 202-293-4000 or by email at kerry@fcba.org.
