Online Scholarship Application Will Open on January 1!

Over $1 million in funding available for undergraduate, graduate, professional, and vocational study

In 2012-2013, Central Scholarship will provide over $1 million in funding for undergraduate and graduate study as well as for career training. 

We will begin accepting online applications for scholarships and interest-free loans
at midnight on January 1, 2012. The applications will be available at

The final deadline to submit the online application is April 1, 2012.
Semi-finalists will be contacted by e-mail in May to request supporting
documentation. Award decisions will be announced in early July.

Each scholarship has slightly different eligibility requirements, but they all follow these basic guidelines . The sole exception is the Stulman Endowed Scholars Program , which does not require students to be permanent Maryland residents. Specific details for each program can be found in the drop-down menus on
our website.

Our loans are completely interest-free through the life of the loan--you pay back exactly the amount you borrow. Here's a savings breakdown vs. a typical private loan. Please also note that due to limited funding, loan awards are competitive.

A student may receive up to $10,000 per year in any combination of scholarships and loans.

Questions? Don't hesitate to e-mail us.   

We're looking forward to another great group of applicants for 2012-2013!
