We base many of the scholarships provided at the University of Maryland on financial need, so it is important for you to complete the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) by the federal deadline. For information about eligibility, how to apply for financial aid, aid offer, and disbursement at UMD, please visit https://financialaid.umd.edu/financial-aid-process.
