The Terp Family Fund provides an opportunity for parents and families of current students and alumni to invest in programs and initiatives that directly benefit and enrich the overall UMD student experience.
The Bright Futures Internship Scholarship Fund supports students pursuing unpaid or low paying internship opportunities. This important fund helps to provide students, who may be facing financial constraints, the opportunity to take part in these internships.
"The Bright Futures Scholarship has allowed me to progress extremely far in defining my interests and career path. Commuting costs were a major deterrent in applying for an internship with the National Aquarium, but with the Scholarship's help, I was able to participate in making change in the name of marine conservation. Without this experience, I may never have had the opportunity to do what I love. I have the Bright Futures Scholarship Fund to thank for this!"
