SCHOLARSHIPS

A limited number of scholarships are awarded to UMBC degree-seeking students who are close to graduating and have a strong GPA. Financial need (as documented by the student's 2014/2015 FAFSA form) is also considered.

Important information - PLEASE READ:

  • Scholarships are competitively awarded - meeting the minimum qualifications does not guarantee a scholarship.
  • The scholarship covers TUITION for ONE winter session course (up to 4 credits) based on the in-state undergraduate and/or graduate tuition for that ONE winter session course. 
  • Students will still be 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 2015 courses, and must be used at UMBC during Winter Session 2015.
