Every year, each Senator and Delegate in the Maryland General Assembly receives legislative scholarship funds through the Maryland Higher Education Commission to award to their constituents. If you live in District 29A in the Northern portion of St. Mary's County and are pursuing a degree, I encourage you to apply for a scholarship.
To be eligible for a Delegate Scholarship, you must plan to attend a Maryland college or university, or a private career school. Private career schools must have the Maryland Higher Education Commission’s approval to operate and be accredited by a national accrediting association approved by the US. Department of Education. You may also attend a nursing school if the Commission approves the curriculum. Students may attend full or part-time.
If your major is not offered at a Maryland institution of higher education, you may apply for a unique major designation that would allow you to use our Delegate Scholarship funds for an out-of-state school.
The scholarship application must be filled out and returned with all the required documentation (e.g. transcripts, letters of recommendation, a short essay, etc.) to my office by May 1st, 2018. Use the following links to download the scholarship information application:
The mailing address is:
Delegate Matt Morgan
House Office Building
6 Bladen Street, Room 317
Annapolis, Maryland 21401
You can find more information on the legislative scholarship program, and other financial assistance programs run by the State of Maryland, on the Maryland Higher Education Commission’s Programs and Applications webpage.
Thank you and good luck.
