A merit-based financial aid program called the Promise Scholarship is available to high school graduates who want to enroll in one of the state’s public or private two- or four-year colleges.
About Promise Scholarship
A need-based financial aid program is the Promise Scholarship program. It is intended to lower the cost of college for low- and middle-income Maryland households. It might fully cover tuition for some kids.
If you (or your family) make less than $150,000 annually and meet the requirements for in-state tuition, you may be eligible.
All you have to do to be taken into consideration is submit your FAFSA (or MSFAA). On the FAFSA or MSFAA, don’t forget to include your Maryland community college. The application process is the same for credit students. Students without credit must submit an application.
- Be a United States citizen
- Have graduated from a secondary school within the preceding 12 months or have attended a secondary school and obtained an equivalent credential within the preceding 12 months
- Be a dependent child of a military servicemember permanently stationed in another state.
Each eligible field of study must be in one of the four fields;
- Information technology and security;
- Mental and physical healthcare;
- Advanced manufacturing and building trades;
- Early childhood education and development
- Annual award amounts: $200 – $5,000, or actual tuition, whichever is less
- Promise funds are applied “last dollar” in most cases, after other scholarships and grants
- Eligible students who do not receive aid will be notified and placed on a wait list
