Scholarship Information

Merit Scholarships

All students admitted to Goucher, who submitted a high school transcript, are automatically considered for a merit scholarship. In accordance with Goucher's test optional policy, test scores are not required for merit scholarship consideration. Goucher students must be in academic good standing to maintain a scholarship; scholarships are renewable and awarded for up to eight semesters.

Maryland Scholars Program

The Maryland Scholars Program is designed to make a Goucher education accessible to first-generation Maryland residents from underserved socio-economic communities. Consideration for the program is available to students who exhibit intellectual promise, motivation, and scholarship.

For more information, please visit the Maryland Scholars Program webpage.

Dance Scholarships

Dance scholarships are awarded based on an audition and the recommendation of the Dance faculty to outstanding first-year students planning to major in dance. These annual scholarships range from $1,000 to $5,000, with a potential value totaling a maximum of $4,000 to $20,000.

Dance scholarships are applied to the student's account by semester (at 1/2 the annual value) and cannot be combined with a Tuition Exchange, or a Tuition Remission benefit from Goucher College. Dance scholarships will be renewed automatically provided students maintain full-time enrollment as a dance major in good academic standing until graduation or a maximum of eight semesters, whichever comes first.

Fall 2021 Dance Scholarship Application and Audition Information are currently being updated and will be posted as soon as possible.
