Scholarships are a great way to help you pay for the cost of your education.
There are two categories of scholarships: merit and need. While both recognize the highest-achieving applicants, the first type is awarded entirely on the basis of merit, the other on financial need as well as merit. Private scholarships are also available from other sources.
Incoming freshman are automatically considered for up to $6,000 in annual scholarships--as much as $24,000 for four years of enrollment as full-time students, provided funding is available. These merit-based scholarships are determined by your high school GPA and SAT/ACT scores at the time of admission.
Scholarship eligible students who submit their seat deposit on or before July 1 will be awarded a $1,000 Incentive Scholarship in addition to the $1,000 to $6,000 merit scholarship!
Priority consideration for scholarships is given to those whose application is received by Dec. 1. To see if you qualify for a scholarship, click here.
Featherstone scholarships are open to high school seniors who plan to start their first semester at the University of Baltimore, undergraduate students transferring to UB, as well as current UB freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors. Interested students who meet the criteria may apply online by the March 1 scholarship deadline.
Incoming transfer students will be automatically considered for merit scholarships based on your cumulative transfer GPA from all previously attended schools. Full-time students with a GPA of 2.5 or greater may receive up to $3,500 per academic year.
Half-time students with a GPA of 2.5 or greater may receive up to $600 per academic year when enrolled in at least 6 credits.

Law scholarships are awarded to new and continuing students on the basis of merit, need, or a combination of the two.
