Student Financial Aid

Maryland Transfer Scholarship Program

This scholarship provides partial-tuition awards ranging from $5,000 distributed equally over two semesters to $10,000 distributed equally over four consecutive semesters. Students are considered for this award on the basis of academic talent and demonstrate financial need according to the information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Only in-state students transferring to the University of Maryland from a two-year or four-year institution are eligible. To maintain the scholarship, students must be enrolled full time beginning this fall academic semester and maintain a 3.20 cumulative grade point average. No separate application is required for consideration, as recipients are identified through evaluation of admission application materials including academic achievement, extracurricular activities, awards, honors, and an essay.
