Maryland Scholarships

Maryland Delegate and Senatorial Scholarships

The Maryland Delegate and Senatorial Scholarships are available to current high school seniors and full-time and part-time, degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students in the state of Maryland. Students attending a private career school may also apply. Students attending an out-of-state institution may also be eligible if the student is pursuing a unique field of study not available in any college in Maryland. Students on an F1 visa are not eligible for this type of financial aid.

In order to apply for these scholarships, you must have filled out your FAFSA by March 1. It is important to apply for these scholarships as soon as you have your FAFSA submitted. The deadlines for each scholarship will vary although they generally are between April 1st and July 1st of each year.
