The Sybil Caldwell Education Scholarship

Celebrating Future Leaders: Honoring Excellence in Scholarship and Service

In partnership with the Fort Myer Construction Corporation Small Business Roundtable, we are excited to continue the legacy of our beloved former member, Sybil Caldwell. Sybil was a tireless public servant and civic leader who was passionate about serving the needs of children from disadvantaged environments. She modeled leadership in volunteerism and service and readily sought opportunities to encourage and mentor young people in their pursuit of higher education. Sybil genuinely believed children are the future, and we proudly offer the Sybil Caldwell Education Scholarship in her memory.

For 2020, we will award two $1,500 merit based scholarships. Recipients must attend our scholarship reception in May 2020. Completed scholarship applications must be submitted in their entirety by April 7, 2020. Please direct questions by email to Scholarship Co-Chairs Kia Braxton and Dina Paltoo at
