The Arthur T. Johnson Transfer Student Scholarship
Supporting UMBC's Transfer Students
Provost Emeritus Arthur T. Johnson recently created the Arthur T. Johnson Transfer Scholarship Fund to recognize the academic achievements of outstanding Maryland community college transfer students who wish to continue their studies at UMBC (including UMBC programs at Shady Grove). In addition to contributions from Johnson, over the past few months, members of the UMBC community and friends of the University have contributed nearly $17,000 towards the Fund.
Transfer students make up forty percent of UMBC’s undergraduate population. “I am establishing this scholarship to symbolize the importance of our transfer students and to send them the message that their success at UMBC is important to us,” said Johnson. “Community college transfers in particular will become increasingly important to UMBC as our enrollment grows.”
UMBC also recognizes the accomplishments of its transfer students through a number of merit-based awards, including the Academic Achievement Award for Transfers (AAAT), the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) merit award, the Transfer Recognition Award, the Honors College Scholarship and the Maggie Hrabowski Teaching Award. Over 120 of UMBC’s incoming transfer students are recipients of these awards.
