Vincent Hynson Scholarship

The Kent County Vincent Hynson ’87 Scholarship honors the memory of a Washington College graduate who led an exemplary life as a teacher, coach, pastor and leader in the Kent County community. Hynson, a graduate of Kent County High School, attended Washington College as a non-traditional student, receiving a degree in history in 1987. 

A scholarship is offered to an entering freshman who is a graduate of a secondary school in Kent County, who meets all admissions qualifications, demonstrates financial need, and whose achievements and aspirations most closely emulate the values of Vincent Hynson.

The scholarship ensures that full direct cost financial need is met after family contribution and federal and state sources are considered.

The recipient must apply for and accept all federal and state need-based aid, including grants and student loans. In addition, the recipient must maintain full-time enrollment and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better in order to continue the scholarship throughout all four years.
