College is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore who you are. Discover what you want to be. See how big the world really is. In the classroom and far beyond, Maryland students have countless opportunities to find their passion and their purpose. By supporting new and smarter facilities, scholarships, unforgettable study abroad programs and more, you have the power to transform the student experience.
The mission of Maryland Athletics is to educate, develop and serve student-athletes through a culture of academic and athletic excellence.
We strive to help our student-athletes serve as role models and leaders on and off campus, compete at the highest levels in every sport we offer and build a foundation for a successful life after intercollegiate athletics.
This campus-wide matching program aims to catalyze an equal amount of support from alumni and friends to ensure an education for students with the greatest financial need. If fully matched, the program would double the number of need-based scholarships available to outstanding students in Maryland.
Scholarships don’t just open doors. They break down walls.
Making college affordable is one of the greatest social challenges of our time. For thousands of students every year, the University of Maryland is the gateway to fulfilling careers and economic mobility. We are committed to attracting the most talented and diverse students to College Park, regardless of their ability to pay for a higher education. Your gift in support of scholarships has never been more important.
It’s a privilege at Maryland to give our military veterans the best possible opportunity to transition to civilian college life, gain an education and have a rewarding experience on campus.
Through the University of Maryland Veterans Initiative, we’re leading the way nationally in providing student—as well as staff, faculty and alumni—veterans with the resources and support they need to meet their academic and personal goals. Your gifts help fund scholarships, counseling, career advising, social events, mentoring and other programs that allow veterans at UMD to succeed.
