The Dr. William Montague Cobb Education Foundation provides scholarships to graduating, college-bound minority high school seniors who are residents of the District of Columbia. Qualified recipients possess both a record of academic achievement and potential for future academic success. Other considerations include financial need and interest in pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM).

Our application is currently closed. However, it will reopen in August 2022 to accept applications from students who will be high school seniors at the time.
