Maryland Scholarship Day 2013
ON DEC. 11, MARYLAND WILL HOST SCHOLARSHIP DAY, a 24-hour giving challenge to support student scholarships across campus. Donors can choose from 17 scholarship funds, including schools and colleges and programs such as the Terrapin Club Scholarship Fund.
To add some friendly competition, the college or school with the most donors in 24 hours will receive matching funds up to $5,000. In total, $20,000 worth of matching funds will be shared with participating scholarship programs.
As a volunteer leader of Maryland, you can encourage others to participate in Scholarship Day. Building awareness in the weeks leading up to Scholarship Day will ensure that no Terp will forget what to do on Dec. 11. Without additional support, $80 million in requests for financial aid won’t be filled this year.
Additionally, getting new alumni to contribute will improve Maryland’s alumni participation percentage and will improve Maryland’s U.S. News & World Report ranking.
Spreading the word will be vital to a successful Scholarship Day, so please do the following to promote the challenge:
Thank you for being a Scholarship Day Champion
