Scholarships Available for Anne Arundel County High School Seniors

Lance Corporal Eric Herzberg, USMC and Lance Corporal William Taylor Wild, IV, USMC Scholarship Fund

The Lance Corporal Eric William Herzberg and Lance Corporal William Taylor Wild IV Scholarship (Herzberg-Wild Scholarship) was established at CFAAC by anonymous donors to honor two fallen Marines, Eric W. Herzberg and Taylor Wild IV, who were both Anne Arundel County residents. Both were proud U.S. Marines who dedicated their lives to protecting and defending our country. Eric joined the Marine Corps right after graduation. He was killed in action in Al Anbar, Iraq on October 21, 2006. Taylor deployed to both Afghanistan and Kuwait. He died in a mortar explosion during a training exercise at Hawthorne Army Depot on March 18, 2013.

Annually since 2014, scholarships have been awarded to graduating Anne Arundel County Public High School students who exhibit the Marine Corps values of Honor, Courage and Commitment; the ability to persist in the face of significant personal obstacles; and the ability to provide quiet leadership in their school and in their community.

Scholarship recipients are eligible for reapplication for one consecutive year pending successful academic progress. Eligible education expenses include tuition, fees, books, equipment and/or tools associated with a specific academic or trades training program.

Two $10,000 Herzberg-Wild Scholarships will be awarded in 2020 to graduating Anne Arundel County Public High School students. Completed applications must be submitted by April 3, 2020.

The Officer Grant Turner Memorial Scholarship Fund

Grant loved sports and played many, but baseball was his passion, and while in high school he became an umpire with the Maryland Diamond Umpire Association. In 2005, Grant Turner joined the Maryland Transportation Authority Police. Grant passed away just five weeks before graduation.  

The Officer Grant Turner Memorial Scholarship Fund was later established and hosts one of the largest preseason baseball tournaments in the state. Proceeds from the tournament are used to fund one scholarship to a student graduating from South River High School. This scholarship is to acknowledge and reward one student-athlete who selflessly gives their time, energy and support to ensure the success of his/her team. In addition, two scholarships are awarded to a dependent of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police Department and the Maryland Diamond/Anne Arundel County Umpires Association, who selflessly give their time, energy and support to ensure the success of their profession or their school. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2020.
