I appreciate your interest in applying for a Delegate Scholarship from your District 8 Delegates, including Delegate Harry Bhandari, Delegate Carl Jackson, and Delegate Nick Allen. We will be accepting applications for 2024-2025 scholarships until April 30, 2024, using the online form linked below.

Here are a few things to note before you apply:

  • Applicants must be residents of Maryland’s Legislative District 8. You can double-check your address at, and if you live in any other district, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship with your district’s representatives.
  • Applicants must be accepted or enrolled as full- or part-time students at a college or university in Maryland. We are not able to offer scholarships to students attending schools outside of Maryland (unless they have a Unique Major status).
  • Applicants should only apply once. All three delegates (Bhandari, Allen, and Jackson) share a single scholarship fund and use the same system to accept and adjudicate applications. All three offices will be able to review your application once you submit this form, so there’s no need to apply thrice.

Find our application form at this link:

Also worth noting: legislative scholarships are non-renewable, meaning you must reapply each year. Filing for FAFSA is encouraged but not required; however, if you don’t file for FAFSA, you must create a Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) account for the scholarship award to be processed. Visit this page for more details.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our offices with any questions. And good luck!
