About the RA Position

There are currently more than 200 Resident Assistants on the University of Maryland campus. Although compensated with room and board for the position, the vast majority of our current and Alumni UMD resident assistants take on the challenge of the position to make a difference.

RAs choose to serve as student leaders because they know they have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of their fellow residents. They know they can be a role model to other students and they have the compassion to care for their peers.

About the Scholarship

The Resident Assistant Scholarship Fund will provide critical support to University of Maryland RAs facing financial hardship. Through scholarships for textbooks/technology and tuition, deserving student leaders will receive financial assistance to help off-set rising education costs.
