SALISBURY, Md. - Officials say that an economic impact scholarship was included in Gov. Hogan's supplemental budget that helps Somerset County residents attend Wor-Wic Community College.
Wor-Wic President Dr. Ray Hoy says that the money is for next year and that the intent is that the program will be ongoing from there.
The qualifications for the scholarship include that students must be a resident of the county for two years, register for 12 or more credits per semester and maintain a 2.0 grade point average.
Dr. Hoy says that he is grateful for the governor's support and the support from the Lower Shore Delegation.
