Purpose: The Gray Mott Scholarship is a 501(c)3 charitable donation entity. The Foundation raises funds for scholarships. Tax deductible donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 356, Edgewater, MD 21037.
HISTORY: The Gray/Mott Youth Scholarship was established in 1989 by the LTPOA. This educational scholarship is offered annually to assist current graduating high school seniors with continuing their education at an accredited post-secondary institution of their choice. The scholarship was named after two very special men in our community, who dedicated their time to volunteer service in London Towne, Mr. Charles Gray and the Mr. Ralph Mott.
Each year LTPOA has recognized two students who have demonstrated excellence in community service work. The original awards were $250.00 each and have been increased to as much as $1,000.00 each -based on fundraising efforts. The awards are non-renewable grants for the graduating high school senior who will continue his/her education at either a four-year college or university, or a two-year junior or community college, or an accredited trade, technical or business school.
TODAY: In 2014, the program's 25th year, the Committee decided to split from LTPOA and apply for tax exempt status. This was to accomplish two things: to increase the fund raising possibilities and to release LTPOA from all responsibilities including the dilemma of covering a shortage in funds. The Board of Directors of the Foundation is looking for volunteers and officers. If interested, please email Chair Pam Obee Sargent - firstname.lastname@example.org or Board member John Rhoads at email@example.com.

a son/daughter of a property owner or bonafide tenant
of London Towne;
2. Have demonstrated participation in community project(s);
3. Have satisfactory high school academic achievement with a minimum 2.0 GPA;

Applications are accepted for the scholarship program from January to April, and must be received by April 15th of the current year to be considered.
