Scholarships Available!

January 13, 2019

If you know of a student in need of financial assistance for the 2019-2020 academic school year, please forward the following information about my Delegate scholarship. Each year, Delegates and Senators in the Maryland General Assembly award thousands of Maryland students millions of dollars in financial aid.

Applications for my scholarship must be postmarked by April 1st,  2019. 

Who may apply: Current high school seniors, full-time or part-time, degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students. Delegate scholarships are only awarded to District 11 residents applying for admission to an institution of higher education within the State of Maryland. If a student intends to study a unique major that is not offered at a Maryland institution, please contact the Maryland Higher Education Commission to obtain a unique major application. Please visit MD Elect to determine if you are a resident of District 11.

How to apply: Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and then complete my 2019-2020 scholarship application. Students applying for the first time can download my new scholarship application or complete a scholarship renewal application if they have previously been awarded a scholarship from my office.

Award Information: Delegate scholarships are awarded annually and students must re-apply every year. The award can only be applied if a student is enrolled in six or more credits per semester.

Due Date: All applications must be postmarked by April 1st, 2019.
