Group Offers College Scholarships To Capitol Hill High School Seniors

By Marc Borbely, 536 13th St. NE

The Stanton Park Neighborhood Association is seeking applicants for its 14th annual scholarship competition. In recent years, the association has offered about a half a dozen scholarships of about $1,500 each.

Applicants must be high school seniors, graduating from a D.C. school, who plan to start college next fall. They must demonstrate academic ability and financial need.

Students must live in the District of Columbia, and priority will be given to students residing in the Stanton Park neighborhood and the greater Capitol Hill area. Last year, Rae-Ann Headley, of the 600 block of 12th Street NE, was one of the three winners from the Capitol Hill area.

Applications are due by April 15. For details, contact Jeff Johnson at 872-6072. §
