WRCF Offers $25,000 College Scholarship

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation (WRCF) announced today that online submission is now open for the WRCF $25,000 college scholarship. The 2013 scholarship marks the fifth consecutive year in which the Redskins are helping send a student in need to college.

Administered by the D.C. College Success Foundation (CSF), the WRCF scholarship will provide one local, deserving, high-potential and low-income public high school senior with a college scholarship that will be disbursed in up to $5,000 increments annually for five years.

“The fact that the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation Scholarship is given incrementally gives me a sense of security and it is what separates it from the other one year scholarships,” said Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation’s 2012 scholarship recipient Christopher Jones.

Seniors attending either a Washington, D.C. or Prince George’s County, Md. high school may apply for the scholarship by visiting https://apply.collegesuccessfoundation.org/dc/ and selecting “D.C. Leadership – 1,000 Scholarship.” The application deadline is Friday, April 8 at 5 p.m.

Established in 2009, the goal of the WRCF college scholarship is to provide low-income and underrepresented students the educational and financial incentives, mentoring and other supports necessary to gain admission to the colleges and universities of their choice.

“I’m a first generation college student. My family didn’t have a lot of money to fund further education so I had to apply for scholarships,” said Jones. “It’s great to know that I have support from the home town football team. The Redskins Charitable Foundation’s support brings financial confidence in my educational pursuits.”

Previous WRCF college scholarship recipients include:

  • 2009 – Clayton Armstrong, University of Arizona political science major and business administration minor.
  • 2010 – Kiana Hardy, Spelman College psychology major.
  • 2011 – Yasmine Arrington, Elon University strategic communications and history double major, human services minor.
  • 2012 – Christopher Jones, Morehouse College business economics major.

WRCF selected D.C. College Success Foundation to administer the scholarship because of its strong working scholarship model. The program places recipients in a mentoring program which requires students to work with a mentor (CSF advisor) during all four-to-five years of college.
