Good Neighbors Graduate Scholarship

The Good Neighbors Graduate Scholarship allows eligible students to enroll in graduate programs at Salisbury University (and its satellite locations) and apply for support to cover a portion of the non-resident graduate tuition at Salisbury University. Recipients of the Good Neighbors Graduate Scholarship will receive a discount equal to 75% of the difference between the graduate program’s resident and non-resident tuition rate per semester credit hour.

To make professional development opportunities accessible to all teachers in Maryland Eastern Shore public schools, Salisbury University provides a grant to any teacher who is an out-of-state resident but is a full-time classroom teacher in a Maryland Eastern Shore public school. These grants reduce the cost of tuition to the in-state rate for any graduate course, provided the course is relevant to the teacher's professional duties.
