JM Scott Memorial Scholarship

The Janice M. Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in October 2001 by the husband (Abraham) and family members of the late Janice Marie Scott to honor her legacy as an advocate for youth and supporter of community services within the Greater Metropolitan Area of Washington, DC. Mrs. Scott was among the 125 individuals who perished in the Pentagon on the morning of September 11, 2001 when terrorists crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the building of the Pentagon. The Janice M. Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund became an official (501(c) 3) non profit organization in August 2004. Selections of recipients are based primarily on financial need.

You can find the eligibility requirements; application; criteria sheet, to include the required submission documents; and checklist online at http://jmscottmemorialfund.org that would allow high school seniors to determine their status and if eligible apply for scholarships.
