The Democratic Party in Calvert County is pleased to announce four scholarships of $1000 each to seniors who will be continuing their formal education. The party anticipates awarding one scholarship to a graduating senior in each of the County’s high schools. To apply, visit: www.clsap.org.
To be considered, an applicant must submit an essay entitled “What the Democratic Party Means to Me.” The essay must be no longer than one page, double-spaced. The applicant’s essay will be the most important decision criterion that the selection committee will consider.
Other criteria for selection include the applicant’s commitment to the community, academic performance, extracurricular activities, financial need, and strength of endorsements.
All parts of the Democratic Party in the County are participating in funding and judging these scholarships. The Calvert County Women’s Democratic Club is taking the lead assisted by the Central Committee, the Democratic Club, and the Riverside Club.
