Euodias E. Parker Scholarship program

Application deadline: March 9, 2020

Congratulations to the 2019 winners: Bakari Mack (Paul Laurence Dunbar High School) and Kendall Leake (Baltimore Polytechnic Institute). 

The Euodias E. Parker Scholarships provides $3,000 merit-based awards to two high-performing students. Her nieces and nephews created this fund to honor her legacy by providing opportunities for low-income students in Baltimore City to continue their pursuit of higher education.

The scholarship will create opportunities for high-performing students to tap much-needed funding, so that attending a four-year college can be attainable. These special awards encourage first generation college students, from economically challenged backgrounds, to pursue higher education and help level the playing field for inner city students.

Prospective students can submit an application online.


—Baltimore City resident; Baltimore City Public School student

—SAT/ACT scores will be considered

—Cumulative 3.0 grade-point average (GPA)

—Essay outlining career goals and aspirations

The scholarship awards are open to students of all majors. A selection committee will review all applications and select the finalists. Honorees will be recognized during a special award ceremony.
