The Women's Center's Returning Adult Learners Scholarships Application for 2023-24 is available now via Scholarship Retriever to undergraduate students who meet the eligibility requirements.
The deadline for submission via Scholarship Retriever is Friday, April 8, 2023.
This common application which is called Women's Center: Returning Adult Learners 2023-2024 in Scholarship Retriever enables eligible students to apply for more than one of the Returning Adult Learner Scholarships with just one submission. Please note that this opportunity to apply will only appear in Scholarship Retriever to students who meet the scholarship qualifications. The six available scholarships via the Returning Adult Learner Scholarship Application are:
- Charlotte W. Newcombe Scholarship & The UMBC Scholarship for Returning Adult Learners
- Jodi Mister/Charlotte W. Newcombe Scholarship
- Charlotte W. Newcombe STEM Scholarship
- AEGON Scholarship
- The Richard & Roselyn Bryson Neville Memorial Fund for Returning Women Scholarship
- The Rosalie Tydings Business and Professional Women’s Scholarship
Undergraduate students of any gender over the age of 25 and with at least 60 credits and 2.5 GPA may be eligible. Students must be completing their first undergraduate degree.
If a student does not meet these requirements, the scholarship opportunity will not appear on Scholarship Retriever. Students who have not completed the FAFSA will not see the opportunity in Scholarship Retriever. Students who wish to still be considered despite not meeting these requirements should contact the Women's Center directly. This encouragement to reach out directly to the Women's Center extends to students who have extenuating circumstances (i.e. students who are DACA/undocumented) that may prevent them from completing the FAFSA.
Students who are selected to be scholars are required to participate in the Returning Adult Learners Scholars + Affiliates program. For more information about the program, visit our website and be sure to attend an information session.
We have two information sessions scheduled:
--Wednesday, Feb 22nd 1:15pm-2:15pm (Online)
--Wednesday, March 15th 4:00pm-5:00pm In-Person at WC Lounge (This info session will be a workshop focusing specifically on the writing components.)
