Scholarship Opportunities for Undergraduate and Graduate Students

For the 2015-16 academic year, CEHSP awarded over 80 scholarships to undergraduate students across all five departments. Scholarships are generally awarded in the spring for the following academic year. However, some scholarships may be offered on a different cycle. All applications are maintained for the year and students remain eligible for any scholarships for which they qualify as they are awarded through the academic year.

Students who wish to be considered for scholarships must apply each year by submitting an application by the stated deadline. Please read the application instructions and scholarship descriptions carefully to determine which you qualify for and be sure to submit a complete application.

An Honors Convocation is scheduled each April from 3:00-5:00 to honor and recognize CEHSP scholarship recipients.

In addition to the scholarships listed on this page, CEHSP students are also eligible for campus scholarships.  Information and application materials can be found on the UMD One Stop website.

Fellowships and Quality Metrics Allocations are available to graduate students as determined by each department. The departments will offer fellowships to students ranking at the top of the graduate applicant pool. Students are automatically considered for a fellowship or block grant award with their completed Graduate school application.

Applying for Scholarships: We will begin to accept applications for scholarships for the 2016-2017 academic year at the beginning of spring semester 2016. Please review the full list of scholarships CEHSP has awarded here. Not all scholarships listed are awarded every year, and this list is subject to change at any time. Read the criteria carefully to determine what you are qualified.

The scholarship application deadline is Friday, February 12th, 2016.
