MELLFIN Scholarship Program

The MELLFIN Scholarships are annual scholarship awards for current or former ESOL students in Maryland who are currently seniors in high school and have demonstrated a commitment to attend college or a post-secondary career training program.  

The Scholarship

MELLFIN is facilitating multiple scholarship awards to recognize excellence and support students in realizing their post-secondary aspirations.  The total award for each student recipient will be $1,000 to help cover costs associated with post-secondary program attendance.  Multiple scholarships will be available.

Eligible students must:

  • currently be enrolled and classified as a senior in Maryland Public Schools
  • currently be in an ESOL program or have exited the ESOL program within the past three (3) years
  • currently have a GPA of 3.0 or better
  • be on track to graduate in Spring

Additionally, student applicants from Howard County Public Schools will be considered for one Bethel Presbyterian Church Scholarship facilitated in collaboration with MELLFIN.

Completed application packets must be submitted online. The deadline for the 2024 Scholarship applications will be announced in January, 2024.
