MD Awarding $100 Million In State And Federal Scholarships

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - Going to college shouldn't just be a dream for many students. It should be a reality, especially since hundreds of organizations are footing the bill to make that happen.

"Some students have that goal in mind to go to college but they don't have the guidance, so I believe the state wants to encourage those students to go. I was an under-represented student, and I didn't have guidance, so I did it on my own," said Katrina Johnson.

Johnson sat down with WMDT on behalf of the Maryland Higher Education Commission, who awards money to over 57,000 students each year through the Senatorial and Delegate scholarships and a number of grants.

"The minimum for that grant is $200 and the max is $15,000," said Johnson.

There's over 16 scholarships available, some require a GPA of at least a 3.0 or higher, while many others are need based.

"We're looking for a Maryland resident, any student that's driven and an undergraduate that's seeking an undergraduate or graduate degree," said Johnson.

There's over $100 million worth of federal and state money to go around, but hurry the deadlines are quickly approaching. For more information about the scholarship, go to www.mhec.state.md.us.
