ACM Offering Summer Scholarships for Those Impacted by the Pandemic

Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) is awarding approximately $30,000 in summer scholarships on a first-come, first-serve basis to new and current students whose lives have been impacted or disrupted by the pandemic. Awards are made based on the demonstration of need related to the COVID-19 crisis in some way – a lack of technology, internet connectivity, or course materials; loss of employment, healthcare, or childcare; personal or family financial hardships, food insecurity; housing disruption; and/or caring for a sick family member. Scholarships are not based on one’s grade point average (GPA) or current income. Students taking summer full term, A term, and B term courses at the college may apply for this funding online at https://bit.ly/3vH3KtA.

Registration for ACM’s summer session is open. The college’s A-term and full-term summer courses begin on May 17 and end on June 21. B-term summer courses begin on June 22 and end on July 27. Full-term courses run 10 weeks from May 17 through July 27.

Students must complete their 2021-2022 FAFSA (Free Application for Free Student Aid) to qualify for the summer scholarship program. Decisions on award amounts will be made as quickly as possible. Students are asked to monitor their student email accounts daily for an email confirming their awarded amount. They are under no obligation to pay repay their awarded scholarships which are funded through the federal Higher Education Relief Fund (HEERF) II program.

New or current students with questions are asked to contact the Financial Aid Office at 301-784-5213 or email studentfinancialaid@allegany.edu.
