26th District Senatorial Scholarship
Maryland Senatorial Scholarships are offered to Maryland residents through the Maryland Higher Education Commission and distributed through Senators in each District. Full-time, part-time, and current high school seniors who plan to pursue post-secondary education in a Maryland college, university, or private career school. All who meet these requirements are welcomed and encouraged to apply.
For more information on statewide financial aid opportunities and resources visit the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
Audited courses cannot be used to reach the minimum credit hours required for full-time or part-time status. If this is a renewal scholarship, once awarded you will receive the awarded amount as long as you continue to meet the eligibility requirements.
This scholarship cannot be used at an out-of-state school unless your major is not offered at a school in Maryland and is, therefore, considered a ‘unique’ major. Please complete the Unique Major application. Email: email@example.com
Students who are full-time, and then become part-time students will experience a reduction in their award. If you received a Senatorial Scholarship in 2023-2024, you will automatically receive a scholarship from Senator Muse for the following year as long as you meet all eligibility requirements.
How to Apply:
