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.
