Each year, Cedar Park Neighbors raises money to award scholarships to help neighborhood students attend college. Since its inception the scholarship program has awarded over 134 scholarships to more than 60 of our young neighbors. That is truly amazing when you think about how those funds were raised by neighborhood residents, who have chosen to give generously over the years to assure the youth in our community have the opportunity to pursue their aspirations!
This year, we’ve fallen about $400 short of our fundraising goal.
If we don’t raise this amount, we will need to deny one more worthy applicant or reduce the total scholarship amount.
Will you help us raise this last $400?

PS. Zachary Spence, a junior at Howard University and one of our current recipients, shared that “as tuition continues to increase, the scholarship is greatly needed.” Zach continues to immerse himself in his collegiate experience, majoring in engineering and participating on the Howard University travelling basketball team. He maintains a 3.5 grade point average and spent the summer interning at the Navy Yard. He got hands on experience as a computer engineer as he helped develop a simulator for the Navy’s submarine ships, composed of two tanks which transfer water between themselves and a reservoir. He constructed a computer program that controlled the simulator and allowed users to conduct preferred functions.
