Scholarships for Scholars is a nonprofit organization that awards scholarships to top performing high school seniors who reside in Anne Arundel County. Scholarships for Scholars is unique as the organization receives its operating funds from escheat funds- monies left in an estate in Anne Arundel County without any heirs- along with individual, family, organization and corporate donations. This approach to awarding college scholarships was the vision of the Dr. Edward J. Anderson, superintendent of AACPS from 1968 – 1984. He was made aware that the governor of Massachusetts was raising and distributing $1M in scholarship money and worked to establish a similar program to benefit the students of Anne Arundel County. In 1984, Dr. Anderson’s vision became reality and Scholarships for Scholars was formed, managed by a Board of Trustees who are leading members of the local community.
