Scholarships available from outside sources

Click here to view a list of opportunities from outside organizations. This should not be viewed as a complete list of all opportunities, nor an authority on any details pertaining to these scholarships. This list was created as a starting point to help students find opportunities for scholarships outside of what UMD offers.

Donors from civic groups, churches, and businesses offer many scholarships to students. Scholarships count toward meeting your financial need. You must report additional aid sources not awarded by the Office of Financial Aid. You can report these sources by notifying One Stop Student Services. If your total award(s), including your scholarship(s), exceed your financial need, your aid package may be reduced or withdrawn. This is a federal regulation.

Make sure your donor includes your full name and student ID number on your check.
