PLAN TO ATTEND A MARYLAND COMMUNITY COLLEGE, COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY, TECHNICAL OR CAREER SCHOOL.
 

Maryland law requires that Delegate Scholarship recipients attend a Maryland institution. You may use the scholarship for an out-of-state school ONLY if the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) identifies your major as “unique” – a major that is not currently available at any Maryland institution. To establish unique major status, visit MHEC at www.mhec.state.md.us  for the requirements, and contact Mr. Carl Brooks, MHEC Program Administrator at (410) 767-3245 or carl.brooks@maryland.gov.
 

PLAN TO ATTEND SCHOOL FULL-TIME OR PART-TIME.
 

Full-time attendance is defined as 12 credits per semester for undergraduates and 9 credits per semester for graduate students. Part-time attendance is defined as 6 to 11 credits per semester for undergraduates and 6 to 8 credits per semester for graduate students.

 

The Delegate Scholarship is for a single year. You must reapply for the scholarship each academic year.

Scholarship selection is based on a combination of factors. All students are encouraged to apply.
