Invest in UMD Student Talent

Transforming Lives and Shaping the Future

Campaign Goal: $42.5 million

UMD creates unique opportunities for more students from diverse backgrounds to receive an outstanding college education. Our vision is to attract and retain more talented students, including those from underrepresented backgrounds, including women, students of color, and promising students with financial need. Campaign gifts for scholarships and fellowships enhance the college experience for all students, making it possible for them to achieve academic excellence, participate in campus life, and graduate ready to pursue lives of meaning and purpose.

Your gift to Scholarships and fellowships: 

  • Helps more deserving undergraduates achieve their goal of an outstanding college education, and send more excellent graduates into the workplace and graduate school.
  • Attracts and retains top graduate students to become tomorrow’s physicians, pharmacists, engineers, teachers, and other highly educated professionals.
