DBF, Inc. Scholarship: Blueprint For Success

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Architects and engineers are the professionals that design and build the world around us. For high school seniors who want to be a part of the making of the beautiful, functional world, local firm Davis, Bowen, & Friedel, Inc. offers a foundation in the form of a scholarship.

"For students to know that there is an active business community that offers scholarships and are really looking for kids to go into these professions, come out of school, come back to this area, and be able to support this area, with that kind of brain power, technology, and interest, I think goes a long way," says Michael Wigley, Principal with DBF, Inc.

DBF Inc. have been awarding scholarships since the year 2000. Every year, one deserving high school senior receives $1,000 from the firm to go toward tuition, room and board, and books, as they break ground on their college career.

The student must be from Wicomico County, a stipulation Michael Wigley says helps develop local talent who might choose to work on Delmarva after graduating.

"With what's happening in Wallops [Island], and the type of growth that we see in our industry and the building trades, it's really a good place to be for students that interested in pursuing engineering, science, math, architecture backgrounds," says Wigley.

The DBF Scholarship is predominately merit-based, but financial need does factor in as well. The deadline to apply is April 30th.

Any interested Wicomico County students can get application information from their guidance counselors, or on DBF's website, www.dbfinc.com.

DBF Inc. sources the funding directly from their own pockets.
