General Scholarship Information
Just apply! You will be considered for all UMUC scholarships.
University of Maryland University College (UMUC) offers a wide variety of opportunities to help you achieve your educational goals.
UMUC Scholarships are available to students based on merit and/or financial need. Award amounts vary by scholarship. Before completing the UMUC Scholarship Application, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA www.fafsa.ed.gov) and the UMUC scholarship application. Be sure to include UMUC's school code on your FAFSA: 011644.
After your FAFSA information is received by UMUC, you are ready to apply! (Please allow 3-5 business days for your FAFSA information to be loaded at UMUC.)
New Scholarship Information
Beginning fall 2012, students who apply for financial aid will be pre-screened for scholarship eligibility. Students who have met UMUC's established scholarship criteria will be notified via their "To Do List" in the MyUMUC Student Portal of their eligibility to apply for a UMUC scholarship for the 2012-13 academic year.
