Sherman Teacher Scholars Application Process

Thank you for your interest in the Sherman Teacher Scholars Program! Consider completing an interest form to receive more information!

We accept applications from incoming freshmen and transfer students, current UMBC students, and graduate students.  After applications are reviewed, we invite select candidates to Scholar Selection Day to interview with Sherman Program representatives. You may gain admission to the program in either fall or spring. The links below provide details.

If you are applying to UMBC as a new student, you must submit both an admissions application to UMBC and the Sherman Program. To be awarded a Sherman scholarship, you must be offered admission to UMBC as an undergraduate or Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) candidate.

If you are already a student at UMBC, you only need to complete the Sherman Program application. We also strongly encourage you to arrange a meeting with Sherman Program staff, Joshua Michael, prior to submitting your application.  He can be reached at or 410-455-1577.
