Academic Catalog: Scholarships, Grants and Awards

Undergraduate students with high financial need may qualify for a Federal Pell grant. Eligibility for the Federal Pell grant is based on your financial need, cost of attendance, and enrollment status. Graduate students enrolling in teacher preparation programs in critical shortage areas can be considered for the Federal TEACH Grant by filing the FAFSA and completing the School of Education’s TEACH Grant Application.

Residents of Maryland can be considered for state scholarships by completing the FAFSA by March 1 of each year. For more information regarding Maryland State aid and scholarship applications, contact the State Office of Student Financial Assistance at 410-767-3301 or 1-800-974-0203 or visit the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) website.

A limited number of school-based scholarships are available each year and are restricted to domestic students. Selection is based primarily on financial need, but scholastic merit is also considered. The deadline to submit the School-Based Scholarship Application is April 1 and the form is available online. To be considered for a school-based scholarship, students must also submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All scholarship award decisions are final, authority resting with the scholarship committee of the School of Education.
