For the 2022 school year, LOV Charities will provide 13 deserving, hard-working students with a one-time scholarship in amounts varying from $1,000 to $2,500. To one student, a four-year scholarship disbursed annually for $2,000 per year (i.e., $1,000 each semester).

The 2022 Scholarship Program application is available on the Ladies of Vision Charities website at and through guidance counselors in Baltimore County high schools. Winners will be notified in June 2022.
