Oxford Library Scholarship Fund
The 2012 Scholarship Winner - Joscelyn Bolainez.
The Oxford Library is celebrating its third year of granting a scholarship to a graduating senior of Easton High School who has been accepted at Chesapeake College. This scholarship of $500, per semester, > goes towards the recipient's course related books, and the award may be renewed for a second year upon reapplication.
The Financial Aid Office at Chesapeake College makes the selection of the scholarship recipient based on the applicant's academic achievements and financial need. Applications are available at the Easton High School guidance counselor's office.
If you would like to support this wonderful scholarship and make a difference in a young person's future please consider a donation. Simply make your check payable to "The Oxford Library Scholarship Fund". Then either drop off your donation at the Oxford Library (103 Market Street, Oxford) during regular library hours or send your donation to P.O. Box 584, Oxford, MD 21654. There is also a donation box located at the library. All donations are tax deductible.
Some of the new books available.
