As part of its commitment to the Washington, DC community, Thursday Network developed a scholarship program to help high school students pursue a college education. Since 1992, the Thursday Network “I EMPOWER Scholarship” Fund has awarded close to $150,000 in college assistance to high school seniors in Washington, DC, Montgomery County, MD, and Prince George’s County, MD. Students use the award to fund their freshman year at any accredited 4-year college or university in the United States.
For the 2012-2013 school year, Thursday Network will award a $2,000 scholarship. All scholarship disbursements are to be used for tuition and will be delivered directly to the Bursar’s/Accounts office of the student’s college or university for the Fall or Spring semester of their freshman year.
In order to eligible for the Thursday Network “I EMPOWER Scholarship,” the student must:
- Have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale;
- Plan to attend a four-year college or university in the Fall of 2012;
- Be a permanent resident and/or attend high school in the District of Columbia, Prince George’s County (MD) or Montgomery County (MD).
Applicants will also be required to submit 3 copies of their application packet and have it postmarked by February 3, 2012.
