The Banneker/Key Scholarship is the most prestigious merit scholarship offered to incoming UMD freshmen. In selecting Banneker/Key Scholars, the selection committee seeks to identify potential academic leaders, who as individuals and as a group, will enrich and benefit from the campus learning environment.


All freshman applicants who are admitted to the Honors College are considered for the Banneker/Key Scholarship. No additional application materials are required. The selection committee carefully reviews the entire application of each early action deadline applicant, and semifinalists for the scholarship are invited to an interview in late February or early March as part of the final selection process.


It can cover up to the full cost of tuition, mandatory fees, room and board, a book allowance, and includes admission to the Honors College.


Banneker/Key Semifinalists will receive their interview invitation by March 1 and they will be notified of their final scholarship award by April 1.
