Beau Biden Scholarship winners named – seniors get financial awards for college

More than $25,000 in scholarship funds have been awarded to six graduating high school seniors in honor of Beau Biden, Delaware’s former Attorney General.

The Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship was established by the I Could Do Great Things Foundation, founded in 2009 by Stuart M. Grant and Suzanne B. Grant of Wilmington.

Awarded annually, the scholarship honors the late Biden, who passed away in 2015 at age 46, by recognizing college-bound high school seniors from Delaware “who embody the virtues of Beau Biden, who exhibit qualities of leadership, community, civility, respect, and a strong moral compass.”

This years recipients were selected out of a pool of 100 applicants. They include three award winners and three finalists who will receive scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $1000.

Allison Dayton of Seaford, Jacqueline Means of Wilmington and Greg Fleming of Wilmington were awardees.
