Charleston Housing Authority Opens College Scholarship Applications
The Charleston Housing Authority today announced the availability of the Cynthia Graham Hurd and Jack C. Muller Memorial Scholarships, which are available to pending high school graduates currently living in Housing Authority residences or households that participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
To be eligible, applicants must be graduating seniors (May/June 2023) in Charleston or Berkeley County School Districts with a minimum grade point average of 2.75. Applications from students seeking admission to a technical, two-year or four-year college or university will be considered.
The Cynthia Graham Hurd Memorial Scholarship was created to honor its namesake, longtime Housing Authority Commissioner, Charleston County and College of Charleston librarian, and Septima P. Clark Corporation President Cynthia Graham Hurd, who tragically lost her life in the June 2015 Mother Emanuel AME Church shooting. The scholarship is available in the amount of $1,000.
The Jack C. Muller Memorial Scholarship was established in 1980 to honor former Housing Authority Board Chairman and local architect Jack Muller, who dedicated his life to improving access to affordable housing, education and employment opportunities throughout the Charleston area. In his will, Mr. Muller designated a trust to be used as a scholarship fund for students residing at Charleston Housing Authority properties. The scholarship is available in the amount of $2,000, distributed in $500 increments.
