On April 12, the Gemstone Academic Affairs Committee presented their Scholarship Forum in the Multipurpose Room in La Plata with speaker Dr. Duvinage, who is the director of the National Scholarships Office at the University of Maryland. Dr. Duvinage prepared an entire presentation about what these national scholarships were about, what you could do to apply for these scholarships, and where you can look for more information. With the help of free Rita’s, there was a full crowd in attendance at this event.
If you want more information, you should check out the National Scholarships Office’s website at www.scholarships.umd.edu. Here, you can look for scholarships based on year or interests, and you can also request appointments so that you can talk one-on-one with an expert who can help you find exactly what you need.
