The Harold Glen and Audrey G. Benson Trumpower Foundation Scholarship Fund 

The Community Foundation of Frederick County, located in Frederick, Maryland, administers the scholarship selection process for the Trumpower Foundation Scholarship Fund.


Scholarship history

Founded by the Harold Glen and Audrey G. Benson Trumpower Foundation, the fund’s purpose is to provide scholarships to Carroll County, Maryland residents. The scholarships will support students who exceed the maximum income threshold for government financial aid programs but who still have financial need or lack resources to pay for their education. Scholarships will not replace financial aid packages provided by the government or private sources but will add to or compliment other financial aid sources.

The scholarships are intended to include two-and four-year colleges and trade and technical schools, as well as non-credit certificate programs. These programs include but aren’t limited to assisted living manager, cybersecurity, certified clinical medical assistant, dental assistant, and emergency medical technician, among other areas of study. Preference will be given to students who previously received the scholarship for up to an additional three years of financial support for a maximum total support of four years, pending the student maintains a 2.0 grade point average or higher and continues to meet the scholarship requirements. 

The Trumpower Foundation’s primary mission is to provide scholarships and promote other educational and charitable purposes for residents of Carroll County. Mr. and Mrs. Trumpower cared deeply about education, and Mrs. Trumpower lived in Carroll County for most of her life. The scholarship was created to provide ample opportunities to Carroll County students to follow their educational and career aspirations. 

Eligible applicants include:

  • Carroll County, Maryland residents who have either graduated from a high school located in Carroll County or are a resident of Carroll County and have earned a high school diploma or graduate equivalency diploma (GED).
