Empowering Future Leaders

The Prince George’s County Drug Coalition provides scholarships to students who demonstrate a high level of academic achievement and involvement in their community. High school and college students must submit the required application and other supporting materials. Students and their guests participate in an awards ceremony with a keynote speaker. Past speakers have included:

  • Dr. Mickey Burnim, Former President of Bowie State University 

  • The Honorable Glenn Ivey, Former Prince George's County States Attorney

  • Ronald Blakely, Retired Associate Director, White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Students have the opportunity to interact with a variety of community leaders and elected officials in attendance. Print media (Prince George's Suite Magazine, The Gazette and Washington Informer, etc.) have written stories on the program and student honorees.
