MARYLAND - The 2014 fiscal budget is unveiled, and one thing is for sure, education is a top priority in Maryland. That means a revolving flow of cash for the Senatorial Scholarship offered every year.

"This scholarship seems to be relatively unknown still," said Republican Senator Richard Colburn with District 37.

For that reason, he teamed up with the Delmarva Education Foundation, to get the word out.

"We look for a student that is trying to get ahead in life and a well-rounded student with good grades," said Senator Colburn.

Here are the qualifications: You must be either starting of continuing your education at a Maryland college, and live in that senator's district. So if you're in Dorchester, Talbot, and parts of Caroline and Wicomico counties, you qualify for Senator Colburn's scholarship.

"There's a letter that they write. That letter can be very important, telling us first-hand from their standpoint, why we should award them that scholarship," said Colburn.

Much like one student, who wants to go into movie production and take the financial burden off of their parents. Your words could be the key to a brighter future. The scholarships range from $400 to $1,000.

The deadline for this scholarship is March 1st. Applications received afterwards will be put on a waiting list. For more information, head to our homepage and click on the DEF Logo.
