Scholarship Day 2014: 24 Hours for a Lifetime of Change

TOMORROW, December 10th, will be the competition that we have all been anticipating: Maryland’s 2nd annual Scholarship Day! Help your fellow Terps make history for UMD & a transformative difference in the lives of our scholarship recipients.

$5 won’t go very far in College Park but it CAN help your classmates and friends receive the scholarship that will allow them to stay at Maryland and afford the education they’re pursuing. Each year, more than $80 million in financial aid requests go unfunded – let’s help!

Donors can choose from multiple scholarship options! The college or school with the most donors and participants in 24 hours will receive matching funds! Last year, The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, with 10 outstanding academic departments, was at the top of the Scholarship Day leaderboard and received an additional $2,500 in matching funds thanks to all of YOUR participation.

Check out the schedule of Hourly Challenges below, and help inform your family, friends and fellow Terps! MIDNIGHT – 1AM is when our students can make the greatest impact & help BSOS bring in matching funds…but winning one challenge is just the start. We’re asking our students to support our all-out, 24-hour effort to get more BSOS students to participate throughout the day than ANY other college or school!

Stop by the table in Tydings Hall, on the ground floor by the Tydings courtyard, to grab a sticker and help spread the word.

How else can YOU help raise scholarship money this year? Social Media!
Follow the action through BSOS’s social media platforms. Post, share or retweet BSOS Facebook and Twitter messages and leaderboard updates throughout the day! Keep your eyes peeled for raffles that donors will qualify for!




Bring on the competition!!!
