Requesting Your Support: SGA's Maryland Invests Campaign

Dear Terp,

The University of Maryland needs your help and your voice.

Last year, tuition came dangerously close to being raised by more than 10%, due to massive cuts to our funding from the state. But thanks in part to the efforts of students rallying on this campus and effectively lobbing legislators, our funding was restored and our tuition spared.

This year, the University System of Maryland faces $20 million dollars in cuts. Without this investment, we will not be able to move forward with the programs that are essential for a quality education for students now and into the future. 

FEBRUARY 28: Come to Annapolis to defend UMD's future of excellence!

“As much as any legislator, Jack Cade understood that it was education that made a difference. He was a champion for higher education funding throughout his career.” – Senator Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr.

This $2000 scholarship was created to honor the memory of Senator John A. Cade by enabling students to carry on his legacy of public service and leadership.
