Outside Scholarships

Below are a number of excellent free web resources that students may find very useful in their search for outside scholarships. This information is provided for informational purposes only. Inclusion does not constitute endorsement. Neither UMBC Scholarships nor UMBC can guarantee the accuracy or the timeliness of information found at any of these sites. It is critical that students verify information, particularly where deadlines are concerned.

UMBC also encourages students to be informed consumers when searching for scholarships on the web. Scholarship opportunities that require fees up front or seem “too good to be true” may be just that. Scrutiny is advised in these matters.
