Please Note: This application may be used ONLY by those who are CURRENTLY EMPLOYED with a State of Maryland Public School Board.

“By awarding me a Maryland Retired School Personnel Association (MRSPA) Scholarship, much of the stress over financing this next semester’s load of courses has been diminished. I intend to use all that I am learning in graduate school to lift each of my      

students higher than I could have without this degree and scholarship. Thank you again for such a generous gift.”

Pauline Baek, Howard County

MRSPA President Ann Marie Downey says

Since retiring from public education, how many times have you thought, “I really wish that I could go to a staff meeting again. I miss those!” I would be willing to bet that most people would respond with something like, “Hmmmm . . . not many times,” or even more likely with an eye-roll and a resounding, “Never!”


The high cost of prescription drugs remains a concern for all of us. Information on pending federal legislation to reduce the cost of prescription drugs was shared in the Winter Edition of the MRSPA News. There was hope that some relief would be included in the end of the year budget bill that was making its way through Congress at the time. Unfortunately, no parts of HR 3, the Lower Drug Costs Now Act of 2019, or of SB 2543, the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act, were included in the end of year federal budget legislation (HR 1158 and HR 1865).
