Applications for the Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) Scholars Award are available online through April 1. The nine new scholarships are part of BGE's legacy gifts that marked the company's 200th anniversary last year. Central Scholarship, a Baltimore-based nonprofit, is administering the scholarship program on BGE's behalf.
The merit-based scholarships provide eligible students with awards of up to $5,000 each year to support post-secondary students who are pursuing their educational goals. BGE Scholars will demonstrate academic excellence and share BGE's commitment to serving the communities where they live and work. To be eligible, applicants must be BGE customers or dependents of BGE customers; be accepted to attend or currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or post-secondary program, including vocational programs; have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; demonstrate service and commitment to community, civic or related organizations; and not be employed by or related to a person employed by BGE.
