The Bowen Leadership Group Scholarship

The Bowen Leadership Group ( 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. Once again this year, the Bowen Leadership Group will be awarding “at large” scholarships. Given the current distance learning paradigm, we have shifted our entire application to Google Forms. A description of the Bowen Leadership Group and potential content for Naviance is provided below. The Bowen Leadership Group will award three “at large” scholarships to the three best qualified candidates 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. In 2020, we had 14 “at large” applications from six schools and awarded two scholarships. Each of those applications was very compelling and the competition was fierce. I am writing to ask for your assistance in advertising the Bowen Leadership Group scholarship application for 2021 to your students. This year, our application is entirely online through Google Forms, so students will receive a private link to the application once they notify us of their intent to apply via email to . The Application Window closes at midnight on 28 February 2021. The primary goal of the Bowen Leadership Group is to recognize graduating high school students in Howard County, Maryland who have demonstrated excellence in both academic and leadership experiences. We are looking for tomorrow's leaders as they move from high school into post-secondary education opportunities. Each year, the Bowen Leadership Group awards two $500 scholarships at Wilde Lake and Oakland Mills High Schools; one for the best qualified female and male graduate from each school. Beginning in 2019, the Bowen Leadership Group expanded its reach across Howard County with the addition of one $500 "At Large" scholarship to the best qualified graduating student-leaders from Howard County high schools. For 2021, we will award three "At Large" scholarships to the three highest rated applications. Eligibility and selection criteria will be published with the annual Scholarship Application announcement.
