Raggedy Ann and Andy™ Scholarship Fund

The scholarship was launched at a fund raising fashion show hosted by former Maryland First Lady Jeanne Mandel at the Governor’s Mansion in Annapolis, MD, in May 1975. A non-exclusive license to Washington College to use the Raggedy Ann and Andy ™ name was granted by the Bobbs-Merrill Company that same year. Scholarships are awarded to one or more students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, good citizenship, and high character. More than 50 students per year are the recipient of this scholarship, which ranges from $1,100 to $22,000, with the average award approaching $10,000.
