The Howard P. Rawlings Educational Assistance Grants are open to current high school seniors and full-time, degree-seeking undergraduates. Applicants must complete the FAFSA online (or the Maryland State Financial Aid Application if needed). Applicants must be Maryland residents, enrolled or enrolling at a two-year or four-year Maryland college or university as a full-time (12+ credits per semester), degree seeking, undergraduate student.
Applicants must demonstrate financial need. Students with the lowest EFC (Expected Family Contribution) are awarded first. The EA Grant may be used at an out-of-state institution only if the award recipient is a deaf or hearing impaired student and the institution makes special provisions for deaf and hearing impaired students that are not available at Maryland institutions.
