Thank you for your interest in a Legislative District 9B House of Delegates Scholarship.
TO BE ELIGIBLE, YOU MUST:
Live in District 9B. To verify that you live in District 9B, visit http://mdelect.net. If you do not reside in District 9B, I encourage you to apply with your current legislative representatives.
COMPLETE AND FILE THE APPLICATION AND SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS.
The application and supplemental materials must be emailed or postmarked by April 3, 2020.
No late applications will be considered. Applications MUST INCLUDE a copy of your transcripts and your response to the essay question.
For a Delegate Scholarship, filing the FAFSA is encouraged but not required; however, if you do not file a FAFSA, you must establish a Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) MDCAPS account for a scholarship award to be processed. Visit https://mhec.maryland.gov/preparing/Pages/FinancialAid/osfamdcapslive.aspx for directions.
Undocumented students are required to fill out the MSFAA (Maryland State Financial Aid Application) by March 1, 2020 to be eligible for this scholarship. More information about the MSFAA may be found at: https://mhec.maryland.gov/Pages/MSFAA-FAQS.aspx.
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 MHEC identifies your major as “unique” – a major that is not currently available at any Maryland institution. See application for more details about applying for unique major status.
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.
