Creating a Path to Higher Education with Scholarships and Financial Aid

Central Scholarship empowers Maryland students by providing scholarships and interest-free loans to help fund the financial gap between high school and post-secondary education. We educate students about college affordability, and advocate for public policy to improve access to college and career training for low-income students. Central Scholarship is proud to award 300 deserving students with more than $1 million per year in scholarships and financial aid, removing barriers to education and offering these students a lifetime of economic opportunity and mobility.
