Undocumented students qualify for this scholarship. Delegate Charkoudian is an advocate for students without documentation and was proud to vote in favor of a bill that passed the General Assembly in 2019, which expanded the eligibility of Delegate and Senator scholarships to anyone who is eligible for in-state tuition. The Delegate looks forward to giving all students a chance at being awarded a scholarship from her office.
