Educational Assistance Fund
The Peg and Orley Bourland Educational Assistance Fund For Glade Valley
Scholarship Offered for Trade Supplies / Vocational Programs / 2 Year Programs
The Peg and Orley Bourland Educational Assistance Fund is awarded on a year-round basis through Glade Valley Community Services and The Community Foundation of Frederick.
Its purpose is to provide need-based funds for post-secondary education in trade or technical fields (such as Cosmetology, Fitness, HVAC, Culinary, Mechanical, Computer, Construction, etc.) to help with expenses such as trade tools, tuition, testing, tutoring, supplies, etc.
To be eligible, applicants must live in the Walkersville / Woodsboro feeder school area, provide a description of financial need, career goals, how the money will be used, and be enrolled in an accredited, post-secondary education program.
Preference is given to applicants who are entering a trade field (not a 4 year degree). The award is paid directly to the vendor. We encourage all ages from high school to adults, along with previous recipients, to apply.
Applications are due a minimum of 30 days prior to the date funds are due. Applications can be picked up at the following locations: Walkersville High School Career Center; Career and Technology Center (CTC); Glade Valley Food Bank; Walkersville Public Library; Walkersville Town Hall; Woodsboro Town Hall; and the FCC Career Office.
