Distinguished Young Women of Maryland Scholarship Established at Community Foundation

Distinguished Young Women of Maryland Scholarship Established at Community Foundation

Fund supports mission of the Distinguished Young Women of Maryland program, part of a national scholarship program that promotes and rewards scholastic achievement, leadership, and talent in young women

PR Newswire

FREDERICK, Md., April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- To support high school women pursuing their educational goals, The Distinguished Young Women of Maryland Scholarship Fund has been established with The Community Foundation of Frederick County, becoming one of its more than 720 component funds.

The fund supports the mission of the Distinguished Young Women of Maryland program, part of a national scholarship program that promotes and rewards scholastic achievement, leadership, and talent in young women. Founded in 1958, Distinguished Young Women is the oldest scholarship program of its kind for high school women. Formerly named America's Junior Miss, the program changed its name in 2010 to better reflect its mission.

The Distinguished Young Women program is based on the "Be Your Best Self" platform of encouraging high-achieving, college-bound women to be healthy, ambitious, involved, responsible, and studious. The program combines the chance to receive college scholarships with life skills training to prepare young women for the world after high school. Each local and state program evaluates participants in scholastics, interview skills, talent, fitness, and self-expression. Participants benefit from the program's resources well beyond their high school years through college and even as they begin their careers. The Distinguished Young Women of Maryland Program is based in Frederick County.

Those wishing to donate to the fund may do so through a secure site at http://www.FrederickCountyGives.org/DYW. Checks can be mailed to The Community Foundation of Frederick County, 312 East Church Street, Frederick, MD 21701, with "Distinguished Young Women of Maryland Scholarship" noted in the memo line. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

As a leader in grant and scholarship funding, The Community Foundation of Frederick County has given back more than $64 million to the community since 1986. To learn more about the Community Foundation, visit http://www.FrederickCountyGives.org.
