UMBC Alumni Scholarship

Thank You, #RetrieverNation. You’ve made us proud and now UMBC wants to celebrate its alumni with a $1,000 scholarship toward first semester graduate studies this fall 2018. In addition, application fees are now waived for UMBC alumni for applications to the Fall 18 semester. Claim your future and apply to graduate school now!

You can qualify if:

  • You are a new graduate student admitted to the Fall 18 semester
  • You have received a degree from UMBC or will have received a degree from UMBC before the Fall 18 semester
  • You enroll in a degree seeking master’s or certificate program starting in the Fall 18 semester

To initiate the application fee waiver enter RetrieverNation into the special population code on page one of our online application.

Students previously admitted to the Fall 18 semester can qualify.

No additional scholarship application is required. If you do qualify, the award will be posted on your tuition account.

If you have any questions about this tuition scholarship or further details about requirements, please contact Mike Suica at

Regular admission requirements and deadlines still apply. If the deadline for your program of choice has passed, contact the program coordinator to see if you can still apply.

Faculty and Staff of UMBC do not qualify.
