You Make A Difference


Supporting Scholarships

Scholarships invite every able student to dream big, work hard and exceed expectations through life-changing opportunities. They help SU offer an excellent education as affordably as possible, and they empower the university to competitively recruit the brightest young scholars.

Financial Need

For several years, SU’s financial aid package has offered one of the lowest percentages of scholarships and the highest percentage of loans when compared to other University system of Maryland schools. Scholarships are in need of financial support from alumni to lessen the financial burden of current students.

Make Your Impact

By supporting scholarships, a legacy is left at Salisbury University providing students the opportunity to grow and learn at the highest level.

  1. You can search the entire list of  Salisbury University Scholarship Funds and support Salisbury students through a gift to one of these existing scholarships. If you would like to give to a current scholarship without a giving page, select the Greatest Need Fund page and list it in the additional instructions of the form.
  2. Learn how you can support students by investing in an endowed scholarship, starting at $10,000, which provides a steady and reliable stream of support. These funds generally grow over time, generating income for many of our scholarship awards.
  3. You may also support scholarships through your  gifts to the  Salisbury University Greatest Need Fund .
