Other Financial Aid Opportunities
Public libraries in the region, as well as other local organizations, such as the Alumni Association at the College of Information Studies, and Potomac Valley Chapter of ASIS&T offer stipends and scholarships. Students in the College may also apply for scholarships, fellowships and grants awarded for graduate study in librarianship by national organizations. Students should be aware of scholarships supported by outside organizations and watch for announcements throughout the academic year.
Maryland State Scholarships
Maryland State Scholarships, including the Senatorial Scholarship, the Delegate Scholarship, and others, are awarded by the Maryland Higher Education Commission to Maryland State residents (based upon your permanent address). The Awards have varying application, selection, and renewal criteria based upon need, academic merit, or a combination of the two. All state scholarships will credit directly to your university account.
Submit the FAFSA, the federal processing center by March 1 for consideration of the state scholarships. However, it is also suggested that you contact your State Senator and/or State Delegate (based upon your permanent residence) for consideration for the Senatorial and Delegate Scholarships. You may contact the Maryland Higher Education Commission for further information.
