Scholarship - General
The MAOP Undergraduate Scholars (UGS) program provides financial assistance to undergraduate students from Virginia, who demonstrate a commitment to academic and community stewardship. In exchange for financial support, Undergraduate Scholars must participate in "family" meetings to share ideas and experiences with other MAOP participants.  Undergraduate Scholars attend personal and academic growth seminars designed to help students understand their role in the greater community, expand their appreciation for multiculturalism, and to achieve their academic goals. Students are also encouraged to consider advanced study options such as graduate school. The Undergraduate Scholars Program offers awards ranging from $750.00 to $1,500.00 for eligible Virginia residents with unmet financial need. The scholarship is renewable if participating students maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA and meet all of the requirements, which includes having unmet financial need. The amount of the scholarship may vary due to the calculations of financial need. PPLICATION PROCESS: To be considered as an Undergraduate Scholar, you will need to submit a completed application. Once the completed application is received, it is shared with the respective colleges and they will make the final decision. The awards are finalized upon the review of financial aid in early summer.
