  • HOW MANY SCHOLARSHIPS CAN I ACTUALLY RECEIVE?
    It is the policy of the Allegany College of Maryland Foundation to award no more than three (3) Allegany College of Maryland Foundation scholarships or $2,500, to one individual. This, however, does not  mean that the most you may ever receive is $2,500.
  • IF I AM AWARDED A SCHOLARSHIP,

    No. In order for a scholarship recipient to have an award continued into the second semester (ordinarily initial awards are given during the Fall), the recipient must remain eligible under the particular requirements of the scholarship. For those scholarships which state in their descriptions that
    continuation into the second year is possible, students must reapply.
