The Maryland Parent & Family Association (MPFA) developed and proudly supports the following special programs.
MPFA Student Scholarship Awards
The Maryland Parent & Family Association Student Scholarship Award is a one-time award presented each year to undergraduate students in good standing who may be unable to continue their education at the University due to extenuating financial circumstances. Thanks to the generosity of many parent and family donors, the scholarship committee will award scholarships of up to $2,000. A minimum of 15 scholarships will be awarded. Awards are made annually on or before July 15 for the following academic year. Click here for eligibility and application information.
Parents & Families Initiative Fund Grants

University departments/organizations can apply for grants of up to $5,000 in funding, and only those departments, offices and organizations within the Division of Student Affairs are currently eligible to submit a proposal.
