In order to qualify for a Senatorial Scholarship, you must have filed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 15, 2021. Please understand that this is a requirement of the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC), and I cannot award a scholarship to anyone who has not filed their FAFSA.
Additionally, to be considered for a Senatorial Scholarship you must be a resident of District 28. Before applying, please verify that you live in District 28 by going to mdelect.net and input your current address to verify that I am your State Senator. This will ensure that, you are applying to the correct office.

You may use this scholarship at an out of state school only if your major is not available at a Maryland school. The Office of State Financial Aid must verify your major is “unique”.
