How to Apply
The 2020-2021 CEHSP Online Scholarship Application is now closed. Prepare for next year by updating your resume, preparing a personal statement, and making sure you have your FAFSA application complete.
One application covers all CEHSP scholarships! (There is a separate online scholarship application that covers all UMD Education Department scholarships.)
Scholarship recipients will be notified via email April 2020. For more information, see the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
Some scholarships may be offered on a different cycle, so it is important to check with your individual departments and programs for additional scholarship opportunities. CEHSP students are also eligible for campus-wide scholarships. Information and application materials can be found on the UMD One-Stop website.

Not all scholarships listed are awarded every year and this list is subject to change at any time. The number of scholarship awards and amounts vary based on donor guidelines and available funds.
When are CEHSP scholarships awarded?
Scholarships in the College of Education and Human Service Professions are generally awarded in the spring for the following academic year. For example, if you receive a scholarship for the 2020-2021 academic year, you will be notified April 2020 and the scholarship award will be applied to your student account beginning Fall 2020. The award amount is split between Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.
Some scholarships may be offered on a different cycle, so it is important to check with your individual departments and programs for additional scholarship opportunities.
Do I need to fill out the application to receive a CEHSP scholarship?
Do I need to have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form filled out in order to receive a CEHSP scholarship?
In order to be considered for a CEHSP scholarship that lists 'financial need' as criteria, you need to have a FAFSA form filled out. Not all CEHSP scholarships are need-based however, so if you do not have a FAFSA on file by the time you fill out the online CEHSP Scholarship Application, you will still be considered for scholarships that are not need-based. See the full list of current scholarships to view descriptions and criteria.
How do I know which scholarships I am applying for using the CEHSP Scholarship Application?
A scholarship selection committee will determine your eligibility for any CEHSP scholarships that you qualify for based on your application material. This system-wide online application system speaks to PeopleSoft and Financial Aid and will automate much of the information needed once you submit your application. You are responsible for submitting the additional material that is requested, and for answering any prompts that pertain to specific scholarships noted throughout the application. Please read through the application instructions carefully.
Are there other UMD scholarships available?
CEHSP students are also eligible for campus-wide scholarships. Information and application materials can be found on the UMD One-Stop website.
Could my financial aid be affected by receiving a scholarship?
Receiving a scholarship may reduce your existing financial aid award. For more information about how scholarships affect your financial aid visit the UMD One-Stop website.
