We Empower Students to Go Higher!

Central Scholarship is a nonprofit that awards scholarships and interest-free loans to
low-income students in Maryland pursuing higher education. Since 1924, we have
offered scholarships for career and technology training, undergraduate degrees, and
professional and graduate school.

In addition, we offer a financial education series for high school and college students
and parents, and we advocate for all college students in Maryland against the practice of
scholarship award displacement.
