Community Foundation Presents Guss Family Scholarship for the Arts
FREDERICK, MD – August 17, 2015: The first scholarship from The Guss Family Scholarship Fund for the Arts has been presented to Brianna Cariola. The fund is one of more than 675 component funds of The Community Foundation of Frederick County.

It also supports music study for students ages 6 to 17. Ms. Cariola, a graduate of Tuscarora High School, will be attending University of Maryland Baltimore County, majoring in visual arts.
Since 1986, The Community Foundation of Frederick County has provided more than $42 million in scholarships to area students who might otherwise not be able to attend college or trade school and grants to area nonprofits serving the community. This tremendous accomplishment is a direct result of generous donors who touch the future with each donation, leaving a positive impact of lasting change for the Frederick County community.
