A pledge of $180,000 from the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA)-Bethesda Chapter is providing $60,000 annually in scholarships to University of Maryland students over the next three years. Twenty-nine students, including 25 students from the Clark School have been selected as the first AFCEA-Bethesda Scholars for the upcoming 2008-2009 academic year.

The AFCEA-Bethesda Scholars Program was created to benefit full-time engineering and computer science students who graduated from Montgomery County (Md.) high schools.

The AFCEA-Bethesda Chapter wanted to help students with financial challenges obtain a quality education in engineering and computer science, and also add to the skilled workforce that is in demand by many of its members. By investing in UMD students, AFCEA-Bethesda Chapter is supporting this need and helping to drive the economic engine of the state of Maryland.

To learn more about the Great Expectations campaign and how you can make a difference through scholarships, please contact us.
