The Chaney Foundation has established a tuition assistance program in Charles, Calvert, St. Mary’s or
Caroline Counties, Maryland, for the purpose of furthering a student in a major related to the building
trades. One scholarship in the amount of 1,000.00 (up to a maximum of $4,000.00 over four years) will be
awarded on a competitive basis with preference given to students majoring in a related field such as
Drafting, Construction Management, Concrete Industry Management, Engineering, Environmental
Science, Architecture or Business. This scholarship may be used at the accredited two- or four-year
college of the student’s choice.

A recipient of tuition assistance shall:

               be a student in building/drafting design/construction management/engineering at a high
                school in Charles, Calvert, St. Mary’s or Caroline County, Maryland;
               be a resident of Charles, Calvert, St. Mary’s or Caroline County;
               be a graduating senior or have a high school diploma and be enrolled in, or sign a letter
                of intent to enroll as a full time student in, a two- or four-year college;
               be selected on a competitive basis in each year that an award is given as set forth on the
                application form.

Additional Guidelines:
            The awarded scholarship shall be used for tuition and books only, and will be directly
               paid to the college/university.
            Receipt of this tuition assistance award, coupled with other awards, scholarships and
               grants, shall not exceed the combined cost of tuition, books and related expenses. If it
               does, the amount of this award shall be reduced.
            Application forms are to be received by April 30, 2010 for the following school year.
            Students who have received a grant, maintained a grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0
               scale, and advanced in academic standing at least one year in each year in which
               an award is renewed while attending college, may reapply on an annual basis for
               additional grants.
            If the recipient fails to maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average and fails to advance
               at least one year in each year in which an award is renewed, he/she shall be
               ineligible for consideration for further assistance under the program until these conditions
               have been met.
            The Applicant shall sign a statement agreeing to abide by the established conditions of
               the scholarship concerning grades, etc. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, parents
               or guardians shall be required to sign the statement.

I have read the above guidelines of the Chaney Foundation and agree to abide by them.
