22nd District Lawmakers Offer Legislative Scholarships

Deadlines for the senatorial and delegate programs are coming up in April.

Residents of the 22nd legislative district who plan to attend a Maryland college or university next year are encouraged to apply for one of several scholarships made available through their state lawmakers.

The 22nd district covers Riverdale Park, University Park, and several other nearby communities. Sen. Paul Pinksy and its three delegates are all offering scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year.

To qualify, students must enroll at a two- or four-year Maryland college or university as a full- or part-time, degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student (or attend certain private career schools). An out-of-state exception may be granted if a particular major is not available at a Maryland school.

Delegate scholarships range from $200 to about $2,000 while senatorial scholarships run from $400 to $9,450. Applicants must complete and file the FAFSA by the state deadline of March 1.

In any other state, this would be a scandal: politicians doling out public benefits---hand-to-hand. I'll respect this practice when Senator Pinsky starts knocking on doors to personally collect overdue taxes, too. Where's the General Assembly ethics advisor on this??
