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 changes that are not paid by the scholarship donor.

Free Scholarship Search Services

All of these searches services are free, but they are funded by advertising. (TU does not endorse any of these products or services.)
