It’s that time of year, again.  The 2015 application for degree-seeking students opens on January 1, 2015.  Applicants are considered for more than 40 scholarship programs via submission of the 2015 General Application for Degree Seekers.  Scholarships range from $1,000 to $10,000 for graduating high school seniors, undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.

Applicants may complete an optional section of the 2015 General Application for Degree Seekers to apply for an interest-free loan.  Benefits of this program include:  NO interest, NO fees, NO credit score cut offs, and a 10-year repayment plan (payments start small and increase in increments each year).  The average loan offer is $4,000 and co-signers are required without exception for all applicants. This is a competitive program and funding is not guaranteed to all applicants. Applicants for the Interest-Free Loan Program must attend school full time.

    I am a senior graduating in 2015 and live on the Eastern Shore in Salisbury MD. A friend of ours, Lois Feinblatt, suggestested I contact you for scholarship application information. I have been accepted at 4 colleges thus far where I hope to pursue a career in the biological sciences. I have not made a an acceptance decision because of financial considerations. I am interested in getting started in applying for scholarships as soon as possible. Thank you.

    I am a graduating senior and I have been accepted at 11 schools. I submitted my application and put the school I believe I will be attending, but if I decide not to go to this school and decide elsewhere, will that effect whether I receive money or not?

      Hi Gabrielle. It will not affect your scholarship status. You may alert us of your school change should you be selected as a semi-finalist this summer. Keep an eye on your email inbox.
