The State of Maryland provides a number of scholarship and grant opportunities to Maryland residents to further their education beyond high school. In particular, the programs listed below are available to community college students transferring to four-year colleges.

Distinguished Scholar Community College Transfer Program
This program is designed to identify Maryland students who attend Maryland community colleges and provide a transfer scholarship incentive for them to enroll in a Maryland 4-year college or university as a full-time undergraduate student. The amount of the scholarship is $3,000 per academic year. The scholarship may be applied to tuition, mandatory fees, room, board, books, and supplies. The award is in addition to any other State scholarships that may be offered to the student. This award is renewable for one additional year provided that the recipient continues to meet all eligibility requirements and maintains an annual 3.0 grade average for each academic year.

University System of Maryland Regents Scholars Program
The Regents Scholarships will provide financial assistance to exceptional community college students earning the Associates Degree or 56 credits. The awards are for the full cost of in-state tuition and mandatory fees as well as living expenses (comparable to on-campus room and board) and a book stipend for students attending on a full-time basis. There is one scholarship designated for a part-time student. For some scholarships, students must demonstrate financial need. By maintaining the appropriate academic standing, the Regents Scholars may receive this generous support for two years (four semesters).
