Additional Information: This scholarship is provided each year to honor the life and spirit of Khia "DJ K-Swift" Edgerton. She was a well-known Baltimore DJ who successfully navigated her way into a male-dominated and fast-paced industry. At the age of 18, Khia began interning at 92Q Jams, where she was introduced as DJ K-Swift. Khia worked hard and she eventually became a full-time employee and head DJ of the night show at 92Q. Khia believed in and demonstrated the value of hard work as well as the rewards of passion and commitment to the pursuit of one's dream. In July 2008, Khia met a tragic and untimely end, but her spirit lives on through the individuals who loved her and her work in the local Baltimore music industry. Selection for this award will be based on academic performance, financial need, recommendations, and submitted essays.

Award Amount: $500 annually, non-renewable.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $500.
