Students at the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation finance their education through a wide variety of options. The University of Maryland Office of Student Financial Aid assists students in obtaining need-based aid. To supplement need-based aid, the School offers many merit-based scholarships and awards. Some of this merit-based aid is dedicated to study-abroad and travel programs.
The Architecture, Urban Studies and Planning, Historic Preservation and Real Estate Development programs each have criteria for awarding scholarships and awards. For specific information on scholarships offered and eligibility requirements, please contact your program of interest.
