John Armiger Scholarship

 

The John Armiger Scholarship Fund, Inc. is pleased to announce the next round of scholarships available for the 2014-2015 academic year.   Information, including the application and submission criteria, is available at johnarmigerscholarshipfund.org

The fund was established to honor the Armiger’s for their generosity to the families of police officers, firefighters, and correctional officers who died in service to the citizens of Maryland.   As owners of Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens, located in Timonium, Maryland, John Armiger, Sr. set aside the Fallen Heroes Section of the cemetery in 1976 to both inter, and honor, our fallen comrades.   In 1986 John Armiger, Jr. held the first observance of Fallen Heroes Day to honor those public safety officers who died in the line of duty.  The tradition continues each year on the first Friday of May
