How to Apply

Scholarship Funds Update

The priority deadline for submitting a UMUC scholarship application has passed. If you have an outstanding scholarship application available to you in MyUMUC, you may still complete it at this time (Please note: submission of scholarship application does not guarantee that you will be awarded a scholarship). If additional funding becomes available, students who have met the pre-screened eligibility requirements will be invited to apply for scholarships at that time.

Additional Scholarship Information

Unless otherwise stated, the minimum enrollment requirement during the award period is 6 credits. UMUC scholarships are generally awarded for the fall and/or spring semesters only. Employees of UMUC and their dependents, as well as persons who receive remission of fees from other institutions, are not eligible to apply for UMUC institutional scholarships or to receive UMUC institutional grants.

If you receive a UMUC scholarship, you must complete 100 percent of your coursework during each enrollment period. If you receive an award for the academic year (fall and spring) but do not complete 100 percent of the coursework during the fall semester, your award will be automatically canceled for the spring semester.

Renewal awards are not guaranteed, and you must reapply each year. You may receive more than one UMUC scholarship or grant award per academic year.
