Carroll Promise Scholarship 2018 - 19

  • No need to wait for the State Promise

    Carroll Promise Scholarship Available Now!

    The Carroll Promise Scholarship has been created by Carroll Community College to bridge the gap for incoming students until funding from the recently approved Maryland Community College Promise Scholarship program becomes available to eligible Maryland community college students next year. Carroll’s Foundation, through its generous donors, is providing the one-year funding demonstrating the ongoing significance of philanthropy and commitment to the overall advancement of the College and its students. 

    Carroll’s Promise Scholarship closely mirrors the state’s Maryland Community College Promise program eligibility requirements. One notable exception is Carroll’s grant will not require the year of employment service obligation. 

    In addition to the Carroll Community College Foundation’s existing annual scholarships, the new Carroll Promise Scholarship program expects to award an additional $300,000 to Carroll County graduates who meet the following eligibility requirements: 

    • Open to Carroll County residents who graduated from high school in 2018
    • Have a high school GPA of at least 2.3 on a 4.0 scale
    • Must attend Carroll Community College full-time (minimum of 12 credits per semester)
    • Must fall below annual adjusted gross income eligibility requirements: 
      • $100,000 if the applicant is single or resides in a single-income household, or 
      • $150,000 if applicant resides in a two-income household 
    • FAFSA must be submitted by Friday, July 13th to determine eligibility
    • Students must enroll and register for classes by Friday, July 13th 
    • Carroll Promise Scholarships are “last dollar” after all other state financial or federal aid is applied
    • Tuition/fee relief is up to $5,000 per recipient for the 2018-19 academic year
    • Carroll Promise Scholarship does not require employment service obligation
    • Funding for scholarships is limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis
