The Anna V. Waters Scholarship fund was established for community-oriented African American students completing high school with a "C" average, who demonstrate the potential to be successful in post-secondary study. The scholarship honors the memory of Anna V. Waters (1918-2006), a nurse who lived, worked, and raised her family in Baltimore. We believe all students deserve the opportunity to learn, be acknowledged for their accomplishments, and pursue their goals and dreams. Since the scholarships’ inception in 2010, we have given students more than $44,000.

Starting June 1, bid on a range of unique items in our charity auction. Original art and decor created by African and African American artists, autographed books, virtual fitness classes, Baltimore nostalgia, AND more.

10th Anniversary of the Anna V. Waters Scholarship

October 24, 2020

Who knew 10 years could fly by so quickly?

After many years of talking about how someone should give scholarships to “C” students, in October 2010 friends and family came together to celebrate my 60th birthday with generous gifts to help make it happen. As a result, the Anna V. Waters Scholarship Fund was created. Since then, the fund has continued to grow and provide scholarships for “C” students.

Every year, donors, recipients and new well-wishers continue to help our village expand. Join us as we jump for joy in celebrating the scholarship fund’s growth and our recipients’ many accomplishments. Look out for details about how we will mark this 10-year milestone!
