Any Maryland high school senior or undergraduate student is eligible to apply for an Educational Assistance Grant. Awards are made by the State Scholarship Administration based upon the student's demonstrated financial need. Grant values range from $400 to $3,000 per year. The award may be applied to the costs of tuition, mandatory fees, room and board.
Grant recipients must: be legal residents of Maryland, demonstrate financial need, and be accepted for admission as a full-time student (minimum 12 credits per semester) in one of the eligible, degree-granting institutions in the State of Maryland. To be considered, students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1.
