The Garrett County Scholarship is a full tuition scholarship for students pursuing a full-time academic degree or certificate program. In 2006, the Board of County Commissioners (Ernest J. Gregg – Chairman, Dennis G. Glotfelty – Commissioner and Frederick A. Holliday – Commissioner) recognized that the county’s future economic well-being is dependent on having an educated, skilled workforce that is prepared to compete successfully for jobs in an increasingly competitive, global economy. For this primary reason, the GCSP was created. Recognizing that the county’s most important asset is its young people, the GCSP provides current Garrett County high school graduates equal access to postsecondary education and an equal opportunity for advancement. The goal of this program is to encourage graduates of Garrett County to participate in post-secondary education and training as a means of improving their earning power and quality of life. The immediate objective is for these graduates to pursue post-secondary educational opportunities by making an education affordable in terms of both time and money. The above information is taken from the Program’s website.
