The UMBC Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund strives to make a meaningful difference in the lives of deserving students to help them achieve their dream of receiving a degree from UMBC and join the ranks of our alumni. The UMBC Alumni Association is pleased to offer scholarships to outstanding rising UMBC Juniors and Seniors.

The goal this year is reflective of the Alumni Association’s objectives of growing the Endowment Fund to $200,000 by the Year 2020. This will ensure that we have adequate, recurring income available for scholarships awarded by the Alumni Association for many years to come.

The UMBC Alumni Association also supports and celebrates the accomplishments of UMBC's more than 70,000 alumni in Maryland and worldwide, while helping alumni to create and maintain a lifelong connection to the University. We do this through a variety of formal and informal events, including an annual Alumni Awards Ceremony. This is our signature event  where we present annual awards to honor alumni for their professional and personal achievements and service to the university. The board also honors a faculty member for extraordinary teaching and overall impact on students and alumni.

How can you help?

$1,500 will fund one scholarship for a deserving student. That small amount makes it possible for recipients to taking that extra class, pursue a career-focused internship, or say yes to an exciting research opportunity. Put simply, your gift can change a life .
