Where to Give - UMUC Scholarship Recipient Stephanie Otis

University of Maryland University College (UMUC) students represent a variety of backgrounds, and the university strives to provide scholarships to meet their financial needs. In the past year, the university awarded more than $6 million in scholarships to over 5,600 students. Without the help of scholarship funding to reduce or offset the cost of attending college, many students would not be able to graduate and attain their personal and professional goals. Through your financial support, you are helping to transform the lives of our students who dream of bettering their lives.
