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 over 300 deserving students more than $1 million per year in scholarships, financial aid and zero interest loans.
