Thank you for your inquiry regarding State Delegate Scholarships. Applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be accepted through April 1, 2017. Applications received after the deadline will be placed on the wait list.
To be eligible, you and your parents (if you are a dependent student) must be Maryland residents and currently reside in District 31b. To verify that you reside in 31b, please visit http://www.mdelect.net. If you do not reside in 31b, I encourage you to apply with your current legislative representatives. Awards will not be given out of district.
Also, you must enroll at a two-year or four-year Maryland college or university as a full time (12+ credits per semester) or part-time (6-11 credits per semester), be a degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student, or attend certain private career schools.
If you applied for and received a scholarship last year, you must re-apply each year. However, if you are re-applying, it is not mandatory to supply our office with transcripts or letters of recommendation. If you would like to submit a new essay, please feel free to do so. Renewal applications can be submitted beginning February 1, 2017. The application must be received no later than April 1st. Applications received after April 1st will be placed on the wait list due to the large amount of applications.
A Scholarship Committee will review and consider all applicants. We will notify the recipients by May 31, 2017. The Maryland Higher Education Commission manages the scholarship program and the funds are limited, so please return your application as quickly as possible. Please read the guidelines issued by the MHEC pertaining to scholarships and be sure to register with MDCAPS: http://www.mhec.state.md.us.
If we can be of further assistance to you or your family, please do not hesitate to contact our office. I wish you success in your chosen field of study and all future endeavors.
