January 5 – 23
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.
- The deadline for eligible UMBC degree-seeking students to apply online was 5:00 pm on Friday, October 31.
- The Scholarship Review Committee will meet in early November, and decisions will be e-mailed to the students who applied.
