General Eligibility Requirements
If you’re a student from Maryland with a GPA above 2.0 and a family income below $90,000 a year, or $66,000 a year for students pursuing career and technology training, you can apply for Central Scholarship awards. You must be planning to attend an accredited United States college, university, community college or career school in the upcoming academic year. And you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
If you haven’t been a Maryland resident for at least one year, but you live within 200 miles of Baltimore City, you can still apply. You’ll be eligible for our interest-free loans only. Non-Maryland residents who are bilingual, and are pursuing graduate study in social work or mental health at Maryland schools, are also eligible, but only for the Stulman Endowed Scholarship.
I’m Eligible. Now What?
Central Scholarship’s General Application for the 2014-2015 academic year opens January 1, 2014 and closes April 1, 2014.
If you have already submitted your 2014 Application for Degree Seeking Students and have completed the optional loan section, please remember to submit your Central Scholarship Loan Authorization Form. This form must be mailed to the Central Scholarship office so you may be considered for Central Scholarship’s Interest-Free Loan Program.
