Dear Scholarship Applicant,
Please find the application for the 2018 Jerry Miller / Joseph Berman Memorial Scholarship below. Jerry Miller taught Business Education at Pikesville High School for 33 years and was loved and respected by generations of students. He died of a heart attack in 2003 at the young age of 56. Joe Berman was a marine and a veteran of the Gulf War and a dear friend of Senator Zirkin.
To be eligible, by law, a prospective student must be a District 11 resident pursuing an undergraduate, graduate, or post-graduate degree in the state of Maryland. If you would like consideration for an award, please send a completed application to Senator Zirkin’s office no later than April 23, 2018. Email is the preferred method of receiving applications.
A complete application includes:
1. The form below filled out in its entirety
2. A 1-2 page personal statement in either word or pdf format
3. You may also include any other supporting materials (transcripts, resumes, etc.)
You must also submit your FAFSA application before March 1. You may apply for the FAFSA on-line at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov
My Scholarship Committee will review all applications and make recommendations for awards based on your academic achievement, and the standards of financial need suggested by the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
Maryland generally limits its Senatorial Scholarships to those students attending school in the State of Maryland. However, applicants who choose to attend school out of state may still meet the criteria for eligibility for a Senatorial Scholarship if they enroll in an academic program that Maryland does not offer. If you feel your academic program may qualify, please contact the Maryland Higher Education Commission as soon as possible to have your major certified as “unique.”
If you receive a scholarship, the Maryland Higher Education Commission, as well as my office, will notify you. I look forward to receiving your completed application by April 23, 2018. Scholarship recipients will be made aware of their award by late May. Should you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact my office at (410) 841-3131.
