Help Fund the DPNHS Scholarship Program

Every year, the Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society offers a $500 scholarship, rotating the offer between Sparrows Point, Patapsco, and Dundalk High Schools.
Each year we dip into our coffers (general fund money) to cover the expense. This year, we thought we’d offer our membership and the general public the opportunity to participate in this most worthy venture. 
The first priority of the DPNHS in awarding the scholarship is that the student pursue academics in the field of history.  If there is no student pursuing a history major, then the guidance office may select an alternate awardee. Several scholalrship winners have gone on to become high school history teachers.
Please send your donation with ‘Scholarship Fund’ noted on the check. In the event that we do not raise $500, the Historical Society will add the difference. We hope to add a 2nd $500 scholarship this spring . 

Dundalk-Patapsco Neck Historical Society and Museum, Inc. is in no way affiliated with Dundalk TV.
