Put Your Academic Goals Within Reach
UMUC offers a wide variety of scholarship opportunities to help you achieve your educational goals. UMUC scholarships are available to students based on merit and/or financial need. Award amounts vary by scholarship.
Scholarship Application Process
- You must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for most UMUC scholarships. Students who apply for financial aid will be pre-screened for scholarship eligibility. See instructions on how to apply for financial aid at UMUC.
- Students who have met UMUC's established scholarship criteria will be notified of their eligibility via the "To Do List" in the MyUMUC Student Portal.
Minimum Credits Completed at UMUC
You can browse our scholarship database to see eligibility criteria for each individual scholarship.
- If you are notified that you are eligible to apply for a scholarship, we encourage you to complete and submit your application as soon as possible. Scholarships are awarded for the academic year on a first-come, first-served basis. Meeting the minimum scholarship requirements does not guarantee that you will be awarded a scholarship.
Additional Scholarship Application and Eligibility Information
Scholarship funding is limited. We recommend you apply early for maximum consideration. To be considered for renewal, you must reapply each year. Renewal awards are not guaranteed.
Unless otherwise stated, the minimum enrollment requirement during the award period is 3 credits. UMUC scholarships are generally awarded for the fall and/or spring semesters only. Employees of UMUC and their dependents, as well as persons who receive remission of fees from other institutions, are not eligible to apply for UMUC institutional scholarships or to receive UMUC institutional grants.
2012-13 Funds Have Been Awarded
UMUC has awarded all allotted funding for the 2012-13 academic year. Scholarship applications are no longer being accepted. If additional funds become available, applications will be evaluated in the order in which they were received.
