    Scholarship Overview

    The Lorenzo Felder Scholarship, funded by ONOSE, is intended to support the efforts of an African-American male who is graduating from a Baltimore City public school. This scholarship is in honor of Lorenzo Felder, a founding member of ONOSE, who believed in giving back to the community. Thus, in the spirit of giving back to the younger generation, the Lorenzo Felder Scholarship seeks to support the college efforts of a “rising scholar.” To be eligible, applicants must have a 3.0 GPA or higher, be a graduate of a Baltimore City public school, demonstrate financial need, and have a record of community service or extracurricular activities. Applicants must submit a “Service Essay” in which they “Describe the environment in which they live (household, neighborhood, etc.) and the most meaningful contribution they have made as a volunteer to the betterment of their community and how college will help them continue their mission.”

    If you’re a college-bound, African-American male and Baltimore City high school senior, we encourage you to apply! Keep on reading to learn more.
