Scholarships for Returning Women Students

The Women’s Center offers several scholarship opportunities for undergraduate women over the age of 25 seeking their first undergraduate degree.

The scholarship application for the Charlotte W. Newcombe Scholarship, the Bryson-Neville Scholarship, and the AEGON Scholarship are combined into one common application this year. The common application enables eligible students to apply for more than one of the Returning Women Students Scholarships using the same application. Eligibility requirements can be found on the application and may differ from scholarship to scholarship. All applicants must be over the age of 25, have earned at least 60 credits, and be working towards their first undergraduate degree.

The deadline to submit your 2015-2016-Returning-Women-Scholarship-Common-Application is Friday, April 3, 2015.

All Returning Women Scholars are required to participate in our Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program and all other Returning Women Students are invited to apply to be a part of the program. Applications for the 2015-16 will be available in the spring of 2015. For more information related to our programming (download a copy of the spring forum dates) and services for Returning Women Student Scholars contact the Women’s Center at womens.center@umbc.edu.
