The Power of Scholarships at the Universities at Shady Grove

Each year, generous members of our community change the lives of thousands of students, making it possible to earn a baccalaureate degree at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG). But limited scholarships mean that only one out of every two qualified applicants receive help. Your gift can help close that gap and will impact the lives of students, their families, and our community. Thank you for supporting scholarships at USG and helping to give talented students a chance to reach their potential and enter rewarding careers.

Invest in the USG Community

The need is great; even with federal grants, students can end up $6,000 in debt each year.
88% of graduates from the USG campus work in the region in their intended career field.
Education is opportunity, but graduating with debt can limit choices and options. Every student deserves the education that helps them realize their strengths, interests, and values, and every student deserves the opportunity to pursue their dreams debt-free. At USG, we say, why not? Let’s do it!
