The Mayor’s Scholars Undergraduate Program (Mayor’s Scholars) provides need-based funding for eligible District of Columbia residents earning their first associate’s or bachelor’s degree at select area colleges and universities. The program is a last-dollar award designed to fill the gap between a student’s financial aid package and the cost of attendance. Typically, recipients of Mayor’s Scholars funding can receive up to $4,000 per academic year, for up to four years for an associate’s degree, and up to six years for a bachelor’s degree. The funds are available first-come, firstserved, and applicants must re-apply each year. Funding is not guaranteed, as funds are limited.
