University System of Maryland
Regents Scholars Program

About the Regents Scholars Program:
Regents Scholarships have been created by the University System of Maryland's (USM) foremost benefactors. Substantial endowments are established by individuals and corporations to provide outstanding students with the financial freedom to pursue academic studies at one of the nation's finest university systems.

Two types of scholarships are available: full scholarships and partial scholarships. Full scholarships cover the entire estimated costs of tuition, room, board, books, and academic materials; partial scholarships range from $3,000-5,000 per year for educational expenses. Some Regents Scholarships are restricted to particular disciplines or to students attending specific institutions. Some have no qualifying factor other than merit. The awards are funded in part by endowments established by University System benefactors committed to academic excellence.
