Ravens Roost #4 Ellicott City

Formula 4 Success Football Scholarship Program

Who we are:

We’re a Baltimore Ravens fan club committed to the promotion of Baltimore Ravens football and the betterment of our community.

Ravens Roost #4 was originally established in 1959 as Colts Corral #4 and now trades as Ravens Roost #4.

What we do in the community:

We hold several fundraisers and donate over $10,000 each year to various charitable organizations such as Special Olympics Maryland, Believe in Tomorrow Foundation, the Brigance Brigade Fund, the Ray Lewis Foundation, Salvation Army of Howard County, Gilchrist Hospice of Howard County, and more.

About the scholarship program:

We’ve established a scholarship fund that consists of two $1500 scholarships awarded annually.  Roost #4 raffles-off two season tickets to Ravens games each year to fund the scholarships.  Given that we are a football fan club, the scholarships are to be awarded to two graduating senior high school football players from Howard County.

  1. Scholarship applications are distributed in the following ways:
    1. Football coaches from each Howard County high school distribute scholarship applications on behalf of Ravens Roost #4.
    2. Howard County Scholarship Database.
    3. Howard County High School Student Services.
  2. A certificate will be presented to the scholarship recipients at the Ravens Roost #4 annual bull & oyster roast (normally held in March).
