This scholarship is established in honor of Mary E. (Bewig) Clapsaddle ’83, a graduate and life–long champion of Frostburg State University (FSU). Mary’s dedication to Frostburg over the years culminated in her serving as President of the Frostburg State University Foundation (2014-2017) after serving many years on the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Since her time on the Foundation Board, Mary has wanted to make sure that Frostburg attracts quality students. Your generosity will help establish a merit scholarship in Mary’s name to support undergraduates at Frostburg State University who excel in academics and have a passion for public service, like Mary.

Over the course of Mary’s 25–year career in and around State and local government, she has been tirelessly committed to public service, working in the fields of community planning, economic and community development, education, and higher education. Along the way, Mary has made many friends in Annapolis, Baltimore, Frostburg and across the State, and met her adorable, and adored, husband Chad. As Mary has battled cancer, she once again turned the challenge into an opportunity for public service by hosting annual fundraisers to support breast cancer prevention and research.

We need more people like Mary who make life a little better for all of us.

Thank you for honoring Mary with your gift to FSU!

Mary is turning 60!!!!!

To celebrate Mary, please donate to the Mary E. Clapsaddle Merit Scholarship. The first $1,000 has already been donated ensuring that the first award can be made for the 2022–2023 academic year. Our goal is to raise at least $100,000 to permanently fund four scholarships; the first $25,000 must be raised by March 2022.

Join us! Thanks in advance for your generosity and support!

“Team Mary”
