A​ll for a Better Future

At Hillcrest-Marlow Heights Civic Association, we are neighbors working together to preserve the quality of life.  How,  one of the ways is to provide our youth with Scholarships to assist them and parents to ensure our young adults have equal opportunity to a better future.  Where there is no vision, people perish.   How do we change the community, one of the ways is through education and engaging our public officials.  During the Scholarship Awards Ceremony (June 2019), we were joined by County Council Member Rodney Streeter, 7th District, and County Council Member, Monique Anderson-Walker, 8th District.

2019 Scholarship Recipients

Dollars for Scholars®

In 2010, we established a local chapter affiliation with Dollars for Scholars® under a parent organization, Scholarship America®.

We became a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Hillcrest-Marlow

Heights Civic Association Dollars for Scholars® (HMHCA-DS) scholarship program.

Scholarship America® and Dollars for Scholars® aid local programs in becoming organized by providing (1) a blueprint for creating a board of directors and chapter Officers; (2) web-portal creation; (3) support for managing a structured scholarship program; and (4) fundraising tips, grant preparation guidance, and award ceremony ideas.

Each June, the Chapter presents scholarship awards to graduating high school seniors, continuing college students and students attending vocational school. Students may apply for scholarships through the web portal to receive consideration for a scholarship award. Student must complete a "Student Profile" (application) to provide required information for HMHCA Dollars for Scholars to consider the student for an award. Student may begin the "Student Profile" by going to the Students and Parents page in this Web Site and clicking the "log-in" button at the bottom of the page.
