We are looking forward to celebrating our 2020 AOBA Scholarship Recipients on November 12. This year’s scholars are an incredibly impressive group of students with great aspirations.

Each year since 1996, in conjunction with Prince George's Community College (PGCC), AOBA sponsors an annual Scholarship Program that provides students up to two years of paid tuition and mentorship from the business community.

AOBA members have raised over a million dollars in the past 23 years, which has supported the academic careers of 178 scholars at PGCC. AOBA Scholar students have transferred to prestigious colleges, pursued graduate programs, and have even been employed by our sponsoring companies.

Congratulations to our 2020 AOBA Scholars! 🎉 We look forward to celebrating on Wednesday evening.
