We received 12 scholarship applications this year and selected our winners at our monthly board meeting on March 22, 2022. This year we added a third scholarship worth $1,500 and are excited to announce that each of our three scholarships will be awarded. Our three selected applicants include Erik Desmith (UMD), Peter Foldesi (UMD), and Scott Rousseau (UND). Congratulations to them!
