Community college students awarded Regents Scholarships
Carroll Community College students William Matthews, Daniel McDonald and Deborah Schwartz have been awarded Regents Scholarships by the University System of Maryland Board of Regents in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements.
According to the University System of Maryland, transfer students who receive this award "must complete an associate's degree with an outstanding grade point average, thus continuing the tradition of high academic standards demonstrated by all Regents Scholars."
Both Schwartz of Taneytown and Matthews of Baltimore maintained a 4.0 grade point average. McDonald of Manchester maintained a 3.94 grade point average.
The students' awards will cover the costs of in-state tuition and mandatory fees, living expenses and room charges, and $500 each semester to be used for other educational expenses.
