Put your academic goals within reach. University of Maryland University College offers more than 100 scholarships to help students like you achieve your educational goals. Last year, we awarded more than $8 million in scholarship funds to our students.

UMUC-administered scholarships are available to current students based on merit and/or financial need and can be earned through our foundational scholarship process.

2018–19 UMUC Scholarships

The Office of Financial Aid will begin to initiate foundational scholarship application invitations via the To-Do List by the end of the spring 2018 term for the 2018–19 academic year. Please refer to the eligibility requirements above to determine if you will receive an invitation. Awarding of 2018–19 scholarships will begin after the priority filing deadline of July 15, 2018 and last throughout the remainder of the summer.

2017–18 UMUC Foundational Scholarship Update: All funding for the 2017–18 academic year has been exhausted at this time. Scholarship applications for the 2017–18 aid year will be kept on file for consideration, in the event additional funding becomes available. Students that were invited to apply for a scholarship via their To-Do List are still encouraged to submit their application. Please be advised that submitting a scholarship application does not automatically guarantee a scholarship award.
