Cost and Financial Aid

Central Scholarship

Since 1924, Central Scholarship has been providing Maryland scholarships and Maryland tuition assistance to students for the financial assistance they need to go higher. No matter what your dream, Central Scholarship can help you fund it. Central Scholarship awards nearly $1 million in college scholarship programs each year. With more than 30 different scholarship programs, we have opportunities for students at every level.

Students can receive up to $10,000 a year, and up to $40,000 lifetime. Central Scholarship also offers a unique no interest loan. It’s like borrowing money from a rich uncle—you pay back exactly the amount you borrow and nothing more.

These scholarship programs are made possible through the generosity of our donors who invest in students, and believe in the pursuit of higher education without crippling debt.

GPA Above 2.0

You must be planning to attend an accredited United States college, university, community college or career school in the upcoming academic year.

You Are a Student from Maryland

You must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. If you haven’t been a Maryland resident for at least one year, but you live within 200 miles of Baltimore City, you can still apply. You’ll be eligible for our interest-free loans only. Non-Maryland residents who are bilingual, and are pursuing graduate study in social work or mental health at Maryland schools, are also eligible, but only for the Stulman Endowed Scholarship.
