The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences Maryland Promise Scholarship Fund was generously established by Mr. Robert R. Satterfield, '95. This endowed fund will support need-based scholarships with preference given to undergraduate students in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland under the auspices of The Clark Challenge for the Maryland Promise Program.
As part of The Clark Challenge for the Maryland Promise Program, your gift to this fund will be matched dollar for dollar by the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation and the University of Maryland.
