2020 Bowen Leadership Group Scholarship Program
The Bowen Leadership Group (www.bowenldrgroup.weebly.com) is a non-profit organization established in 2014 by Lieutenant Colonel Calvert L. Bowen, III (TrIIIp), Wilde Lake Class of 1983, in recognition of the 50 years of leadership and service provided by his mother, Rosalie Arcuri Bowen, to the students and instructional staffs of the Howard County Public School System from 1968 until her retirement in 2014.
The Bowen Leadership Group will award one “at large” scholarship to the best qualified candidate from applications from Howard County high schools. Candidate applications are assessed for outstanding academic performance in high school and leadership in school and community activities. 2019 was our first “at large” scholarship, and we received ten applications from five schools across the county with our winner coming from Reservoir. Each of those applications was very compelling and the competition was fierce. The deadline for submission is 29 February 2020.
Applications are available at www.bowenldrgroup.weebly.com We are asking that all students email the applications back to us as that will help accelerate our review of their applications. Scanned copies of handwritten applications are also acceptable as long as we can read them. Finally, if a student cannot email us the application, we will always accept them by mail at our address:
