Need some additional aid for school? Why not use the Scholarship Retriever to search for scholarship opportunities? Current UMBC students should use this online database to help search for scholarship opportunities outside of the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships. These scholarships are either sponsored by UMBC departments or outside sources, and they are just for UMBC students. You can access the Scholarship Retriever on our website at http://www.umbc.edu/financialaid/scholar_current.html. Retrieve!
If you want more resources to help with your search for scholarships, there are a lot of great options available on the web. Please visit our website at http://www.umbc.edu/financialaid/scholar_search.html for more information about scholarship web searches. It is important to note, however, we encourage students to be informed consumers when searching for scholarships on the web. Scholarships that require fees up front or seem “too good to be true” may be just that. Remember to be careful and use good judgment.
If you are awarded an outside scholarship, be sure to submit the Scholarship Notification Form to the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships, so we can update your account. The form is found online at http://www.umbc.edu/financialaid/forms.html. Happy scholarship hunting!
