Award Process

Annually, seniors from Baltimore City and Prince George’s County public high schools are invited to apply for an Incentive Award. Selected students enroll at the University of Maryland, in the academic area of his or her choice, with all tuition, room, and board paid up to his or her financial need.


Students benefit from a supportive program of advisors, faculty/staff mentors and special programming while at Maryland. In return, they will give back to their high schools and neighborhoods through peer advising, high school visits, and other outreach programs, with the intention of inspiring young people to similar academic achievement.

Students must apply to the University of Maryland by Nov. 1. Students should take the SAT I or ACT exam and send results to the University of Maryland (school code: 5814).
