Transfer Merit Scholarships

If you are transferring to the University of Maryland, we offer scholarships tailored just for you!

Merit scholarships are offered to some of the University of Maryland’s most academically talented transfer students. Transfer applicants that apply by the March 1 fall early action deadline, are automatically reviewed for some of these merit scholarships, while others require a separate application. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents can qualify for the university’s merit scholarships.

Students cannot appeal their merit scholarship decisions, and the university does not match scholarship offers from other institutions. Scholarships offered to admitted students who do not enroll at UMD cannot be disbursed to other students.

Additional Scholarship Resources

We are committed to providing you with helpful information and resources that can assist in making a UMD education affordable for you and your family. Students admitted to UMD have the ability to find and apply for external scholarships through our scholarship matching tool, Scholarship Universe.

Additionally, several academic departments offer merit scholarships to their most promising students. You should contact the department, college or school directly for information about availability, eligibility, applications and deadlines.
