The Knott Scholarship Funds will be changing its application process starting in fall of 2018. All applications will be received through a portal that is currently under construction. Please check back with us in after October 15th to create a portal account for your student applicant. Applications for the upcoming academic year (2019-2020) will be due at 5:00 pm on March 22, 2019.

Knott Scholars are encouraged to stay in touch with other scholars and with their community. To foster these connections, the Knott Scholar Council holds a variety of events through the year for both current and graduate scholars. These events are listed below. We also encourage all scholars to join our Facebook page (see the link on our home page) for more expanded and timely reminders of these events.

For the 2018-2019 Academic Year, Knott Scholars have partnered with St. Francis of Assisi School, a PK(2)-8th grade school for boys and girls in northeast Baltimore. Many needy students receive tuition assistance from the Partners in Excellence Program and Archdiocese of Baltimore School Fund.
To begin our partnership, all Knott Scholars are asked to contribute one of more items to the Supplies Collection. Teachers and staff at St. Francis of Assisi School have asked for the following items that will benefit the school and the students:
Expo markers
Expo erasers
Reams of paper for drawing
Play doh
Gift cards to Walmart, Target, or Amazon
Baby wipes
Clorox wipes
Flushable wipes
Thanks to everyone for your generosity. Can’t attend but still want to support the partnership? Just contact the office for additional information.
