Scholarships

The Office of Summer & Winter Programs awards full and partial scholarships to UMBC degree-seeking students who have a high GPA are close to graduating. Financial need (determined by the 2016/2017 FAFSA) is also considered.

Important Scholarship Details

  • Scholarships are competitively awarded - meeting the minimum qualifications does not guarantee a scholarship.
  • Students are responsible for any fees associated with the course and (if they are NOT classified as a Maryland resident) the remaining out-of-state tuition charges.
  • Scholarships are only awarded for UMBC Winter Session courses, and must be used at UMBC during Winter Session 2017.

Full Scholarships

  • Full scholarships cover tuition for ONE summer session course (up to 4 credits) based on UMBC’s in-state undergraduate or graduate tuition rate.

  • If you are registered for MORE than one UMBC winter session course, the scholarship will be applied to ONE course carrying the most credits and you will be responsible for the tuition and fees related to other course(s) that you are enrolled in.
