Outside/Private Scholarships
| Graduate Students

Scholarships from private sources are an additional method of financing your graduate education. The University recommends that students apply for other scholarship and fellowship funds which may be available through outside sources: the state or federal government, private donors, and corporations. Information about these programs may be obtained by searching the Web. Links to outside funding searches can be found at, and at Outside/Private Scholarships|Freshman and Transfer Students. You can also check at the public library, academic departments, or community organizations. Students must report all awards received to the Office of Student Financial Services. Students who receive private scholarships may have their loan and/or work-study reduced accordingly.

Special Note for Maryland State residents:
Students can now log on to the Maryland Higher Education Commission website to get up-to-the-minute information about scholarships and financial assistance. Students can also check on the status of their state scholarship application.

Fellowships and Teaching and Research Assistantships

Full and partial graduate fellowships and teaching or research assistantships may be provided by academic departments of the university. They are awarded each year and may be renewed on the recommendation of the student's academic department. Specific information is available through the academic departments.
