At the start of our 20th anniversary season, we introduced the first ever Carson Scholars Fund Hall of Fame, a year-long celebration of individuals whose lives and careers are an integral part of the Fund’s history.
The mission of the Hall of Fame is to honor outstanding Carson Scholar Alumni who are representative of CSF’s mission – those who have demonstrated success and excellence in the work force, who have excelled academically and who have made significant contributions in their communities.

These Carson Scholar Alumni were honored at our 20th Annual Maryland Awards Ceremony:
Balance statements and Payout Request Forms for the spring 2017 semester will be made available to all eligible scholars in late October. The Payout Request Form must be completed and submitted back to the CSF office by Monday, November 21, 2016. Checks will be mailed to colleges on December 2, 2016 in time for the spring semester. Any Payout Request Forms received between now and then will be held until December. Any Payout Request Forms received after December 2, 2016 will be held for payout for the fall 2017 semester.
Please note that payouts can only be made after verifying that the scholar is a full-time accepted and enrolled student at an accredited institution within the United States for the upcoming semester. Students must be enrolled in a bachelor’s-degree-track (four-year) program.
If any of your contact information (mailing address, email address, or phone number) has changed since we last heard from you, please get in touch! We can only mail Payout Request Forms to addresses we have. To update your information, call 410.828.1005 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please note that it is the scholar and/or parent and guardian’s responsibility to alert the Carson Scholars Fund of any changes in contact information so we can ensure that applications can be received each year. It is also vital to maintain your records so that scholarship awards can be accurately disbursed to the college or university that Carson Scholars eventually attend in their post-secondary academic careers.
