Simon Youth Foundation, a national nonprofit providing educational opportunities for at-risk high school students, will award a college scholarship to one student from every community that is home to a retail concern owned by Simon Property Group, which includes Arundel Mills and Hagerstown Premium Outlets.

Simon Youth Foundation Community Scholarships are awarded in partnership with local Simon properties.

The application period has begun and will end on Feb. 25.

Students are encouraged to apply online at syf.org.

Any student who will be graduating in 2015 and lives within 50 miles of a Simon property is eligible.

The program will award a one-time scholarship of up to $1,500 each to students who plan to enroll in accredited colleges, universities, or vocational or technical schools.

Students are selected based on criteria including financial need, academic performance, leadership skills and participation in school and community activities. Students who are the first in their families to pursue post-secondary education will also be given close consideration.

Recipients will be notified the week of May 4.
