2015/2016 Online Scholarship Application Instructions

The online scholarship application is for current Clark School engineering students and new transfer students to the Clark School. Applicants will be considered for every scholarship administered by the Clark School for which they are eligible. Only students receiving a scholarship will be notified. Notification usually begins in July. Please be aware that scholarship funding for the college changes each year. Students receiving scholarship funding one year may not receive the same or any funding in future years.

Before You Begin the Online Scholarship Application

  1. Prepare a complete resume or curriculum vitae. The resume does not have to be one page for the scholarship application. Need help writing a resume? - look at "Resumes and References" from Engineering Co-op & Career Services. Your resume or CV must be submitted in PDF or MS Word format. A PDF preserves your formatting; whereas, the formatting in MS Word can change.
  2. Plan your responses to two short statements (maximum 500 words per statement). Write professionally using good grammar, spelling and punctuation. In addition to being reviewed by the Clark School, you could be nominated for external scholarships provided by corporations or engineering organizations. We nominate students whose applications have a professional appearance.

    The short statements are:

    • Describe any financial considerations affecting your ability to attend the University of Maryland.
    • Describe your engineering interests and career plans. How you became interested in engineering, what interests you about your major, your plans after graduation, and what you hope to do with your engineering degree.

Please note that once you begin the scholarship application, you must complete it. You will not be able to partially complete the application, save it and return to it later.
