Featherstone College Scholarships

Access to higher-education is a powerful driver that creates opportunities for underserved communities to achieve economic stability. 

In 2016, we created the Featherstone College Scholarship Program to promote higher education and to empower the next generation of student leaders.

In Fall 2020, selected students will receive merit-based awards to attend the University of Baltimore. The innovative scholarship fund works to help increase access to four year institutions for diverse communities.  

Over the past three years, we have awarded 28 merit based awards totaling $58,000. First-generation college students are now attending Cornell University, University of Baltimore and the University of Maryland. Interested candidates can apply online
