Scholarships & Grants

What is a scholarship?

Scholarships are a type of financial assistance that does not require repayment. They are considered gift aid and may range from a few hundred dollars to the full price of tuition. Many organizations offer scholarships, including the State of Maryland, the College, and external private sources. Many funds exist to assist you with funding your college education. You just have to start hunting!

McDaniel College offers academic scholarships determined by the Admissions Office. Students should note that these scholarships are offered to prospective students only and that the scholarship amount remains the same each year as long as the student maintains Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).

What is a grant?

Like scholarships, grants are a type of financial assistance that does not require repayment. Grants may be awarded to students with high financial need. They may be awarded by the federal government, the state government, or the College. Information from the FAFSA is used to determine eligibility.
