Undergraduate Admission Scholarships

Towson University offers a variety of merit-based scholarships for new freshman and transfer students.

University Admissions Office Scholarships

Merit-based Scholarships are offered to incoming freshmen and transfer students for the fall term only. Scholarships are very competitive and are awarded to students with strong academic credentials. In order to be considered for these scholarships, Freshman students must complete their admission application by December 1 and Transfer students must complete their admission application by March 1.

All of these awards require full-time Fall and Spring enrollment.

Provost and Tiger Scholarships

  • These are our largest awards for our most competitive freshman applicants. Awards amounts vary based on applicant strength and tuition rate (in-state or out-of-state). 
  • Funding is limited and final selection criteria are based on a competitive evaluation of each year's applicant pool. 

Transfer Achievement Award

Students must submit their admission application and all supporting documents by March 1.  Budget is limited so minimum GPA/credits will be determined by the strength of the applicant pool.

Top 10% Grants

  • Freshman who are admitted to TU from Baltimore City and Baltimore County public schools, who are in the top 10 percent of their class at the end of their junior year in high school.
  • Completion of college prep curriculum in the same high school for four years.
  • Interested students must apply to TU by the deadlines listed above and their top 10 percent status must be verified by their high school. (The high school must provide our office with a list of weighted class ranks.)
  • Applicants must also submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by January 15 and must demonstrate financial need defined as a FAFSA Expected Family Contribution (EFC) less than or equal to $10,000.
