Scholarships for Incoming Freshmen

NOTE: These scholarships will expire at the conclusion of the Spring 2016 semester.

Please note that there are specific requirements which ALL honors scholarship recipients must adhere to in order to maintain their honors scholarship.

Gateway Scholarship
The Gateway Scholarship gets its name from Morgan State’s former motto, “A Gateway to Opportunity.” This scholarship helps bridge the financial gap for students who are solid, consistent “B” students. Gateway Scholarship funding works in one of two ways:

Option 1 (Off-campus): Award normally covers up to $2,500 per semester toward tuition & fees and on-campus room & board costs.

Option 2 (On-campus): If the student pays tuition and fees using non-Honors funds, the Gateway Scholarship will cover the remaining unmet on-campus room & board costs up to $7,500 per year.

Requirements:
Minimum cumulative high school G.P.A. of 3.000 and total SAT I: Reasoning Test score of 1000 (1100 for non-MD-residents) or ACT composite score of 22 (24 for non-MD residents).
