50 scholarships from Long & Foster

Long & Foster Real Estate Inc. is marking its 30th anniversary this year by awarding 50 scholarships of $1,000 each to high school seniors in the mid-Atlantic region.

The company expects to award 14 scholarships in the Baltimore and Pennsylvania region.

Applicants must also demonstrate financial need, indicate positions of leadership they held while a student, describe the school groups and community organizations in which they have served and list their work experience while in school.

Students must submit a short essay on their most significant high school experience or their expectations for college.

"I feel very committed to helping students get to college," Foster said, adding, "many times, well-rounded students have special financial needs."
