There are a number of scholarships and grants available to help Maritime students pay for college. Scholarships are awarded based on need, merit or a combination of both and do not require repayment.  Each year, Maritime College provides more than $1 million in scholarship assistance. Maritime College offers a wide range of scholarships funded by the College's Sallyport Fund, scholarship endowments and supporting organizations, such as, the Faculty Student Association and the Maritime College Alumni Association. These awards are made possible by the generous donations of alumni, faculty, staff, industry partners, corporations and friends of the College.

All students are required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year in order to be eligible to receive an institutional scholarship. Students must also meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards for Federal and State aid and/or if applicable meet Maritime scholarship conditions as indicated by your scholarship agreement.
