CMM VOLUNTEER COUNCIL ANNOUNCES NEW SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Volunteer Council at the Calvert Marine Museum (CMM) announces the establishment of a new scholarship fund. Eligible candidates must be 25 years or younger, have a high school diploma or be a graduating senior, and have completed at least 20 hours of volunteer service during the previous calendar year.
The objectives of the Volunteer Council are to recruit and promote the effective use of volunteer services through organization, training, and communication to contribute to the mission and purposes of the museum. The Council is pleased to offer a $500 scholarship to one individual to help offset education-related costs. The scholarship is open to applicants pursuing education in any field, but preferably those that support the activities of the museum, such as, maritime history, estuarine biology, education, paleontology, development, marketing, etc.
Applications will be accepted now through April 1, 2016 and the award will be made by May 1, 2016. This scholarship may not be combined with any other scholarship funding administered by the museum or its clubs. One scholarship will awarded each year; additional scholarships may be awarded depending on fund availability.
