McDaniel College Visit Incentive Grant

McDaniel College has always been proud to encourage students to see for themselves what campus is like by offering a $4,000 Visit Incentive Grant.

This fall, for a few weeks only, we’re doubling our Visit Incentive Grant!

Students who attend one of our in-person or virtual admissions visits between now and November 15, 2021 will automatically qualify for an extra $4,000 (a total of $8,000) over their four years at McDaniel College). The Visit Incentive Grant is in addition to any merit-based scholarship awarded. Click here for the details and eligibility requirements.

How to use the Scholarship Connection

As the SWHS counseling office is made aware of scholarship opportunities we will post them here.  We will post a short summary of the amount, criteria, etc. as well as a link to the online application OR a PDF of a paper application.  Our hope is that students can use this site to quickly and efficiently search for scholarship opportunities.  Students are responsible for regularly checking scholarship openings, completing applications, and submitting on time.
