The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation (WRCF) is again providing one high-potential, low-income high school senior with a $25,000 college scholarship.
Administered by the DC College Success Foundation (www.dccollegesuccessfoundation.org), the WRCF scholarship will provide one deserving public high school student in either the District of Columbia or Prince George’s County, MD with a college scholarship that will be disbursed in $5,000 increments annually. The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation chose to establish a $25,000 college scholarship that will be disbursed throughout the student’s collegiate career because oftentimes with smaller scholarships, students are forced to search for additional funds or drop out of school after their freshman year.
Additionally, the WRCF chose the DC College Success Foundation to administer the scholarship in part because of their strong working scholarship model that places scholarship recipients in a mentoring program that requires the student to work with a mentor during their freshman year to help ensure success.
High school seniors attending either a District of Columbia Public School or Prince George’s County Public School may apply for the scholarship by visiting here.
