This section contains information on scholarships that are offered for southern Maryland students by local organizations and businesses. Many organizations tell us that alot of money goes unawarded because they do not receive applications. We recommend that students and parents in need of financial aid invest the time to apply for as many scholarships as needed. Your chances may even be better with the lesser known funds.
If your local business or organization offers a scholarship for southern Maryland students, and you are not listed here, please contact us with the applicable information. If you have an application form and do not have a website from which people can download it, we will be happy to host your form for you. Just send it to us in WORD or PDF format and we'll do the rest.
