These scholarships cover tuition, computers, supplies, books and university/college/school owned housing. Scholarship awards will be based on essays, GPA and length of time remaining to receive a degree.

There are two types of scholarships available for high school seniors and current college students: academic merit based and financial need based.

If the student chooses to apply for the need-based application, their parents or the head of household must submit their most recently filed federal income tax return.

“Earlier this year we were able to award more than $157,000 in scholarships to Claymont students and graduates and hope to award that amount or even more this year,” scholarship committee member Martha Campbell said. “We are humbled and honored that so many of our alumni, community members and area businesses help our students pursue their goals and dreams of a higher education through their generous scholarship donations.”
