COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland will host its first-ever Scholarship Day, a 24-hour giving challenge to support student scholarships across campus. Scholarship Day will take place Dec. 11, 2013.

Donors can choose from 17 scholarship options, including the university's various schools and colleges, and programs such as the Honors College, Student Veterans and Terrapin Club Scholarship Fund. Without additional support, $80 million in requests for financial aid won’t be filled this year. Scholarships help to bridge the gap.

The college or school with the most donations in 24 hours will receive matching funds up to $5,000. In total, $20,000 worth of matching funds will be shared with participating scholarship programs. In addition, UMTV – the university's cable TV station - will be supporting the effort with a TerpVision Festival throughout the day. 

For more information, visit scholarshipday.umd.edu.  Join the conversation on Twitter by following @ScholarshipDay and using the hashtag #ScholarshipDayUMD.

Watch the stories of UMD students who have greatly benefitted from earning scholarships, some of whom call it a game-changer for their academic career.
