Private Scholarships

There are over 1.5 million private scholarships from thousands of different scholarship sponsors.
Check directly with groups in your local community or try the resources listed below.

1)   Never pay for scholarship search services or applications

  • Legitimate scholarships never charge application fees.
  • All the best scholarship search services are available for free online.
  • For more information, see Scholarship Scams

2)  Arranging Payments from Private Scholarships

The Bursar’s Office will disburse scholarship funds according to the policies and procedures of the private scholarship donor and TU.

  • If you are receiving scholarship funds from a private donor (other than a Maryland State scholarship), you may defer that portion of your term payment by forwarding a copy of the scholarship award letter to the Bursar’s Office.
  • You are still ultimately responsible for any charges that are not paid by the scholarship donor.
  • Office of the Bursar

3)  Free Scholarship Search Services

All of these services are free, but many of them are funded by advertising.
(TU does not endorse any of the products or services that they advertise.)
