Why Give to the Universities at Shady Grove?

Quite simply, the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is the path to a brighter future for our region. Scholarships to attend programs on the USG campus changes lives for the better. Every scholarship contribution goes far beyond tuition assistance, as our entire community benefits every time a student earns a degree.

  • Scholarship gifts help students on their drive to a degree
  • The need is great — even with federal grants, students can end up $6,000 in debt each year
  • Studies show bachelor and graduate degree holders contribute more to the local economy
  • 88% of graduates from the USG campus work in the region in their intended career field
  • You’ll get more than you give: students will always remember your kindness

A wide range of scholarship funds covering everything from textbooks to full tuition have been established at USG. Help students achieve their goals. Give today.
