The Returning Students Program
was established by Barbara Goldberg and Beverly Greenfeig in 1973 to serve the needs of a growing number of adult women in their transition to University life. They are responsible for seeking funding for adult learners, and particularly women, through the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation, the Gerald G. Portney Scholarship and the Marilyn K. Brown Loan. Since 1981, they have awarded over half a million dollars in scholarships to hundreds of adult learners. Beverly Greenfeig and Barbara Goldberg currently advise the Counseling Center in the administration of these scholarships.THE CHARLOTTE W. NEWCOMBE SCHOLARSHIPThe Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation provides scholarships in partnership with selected colleges and universities that welcome enrollment by mature adults and are committed to their success. The University of Maryland is very pleased to be selected as a partner institution with the Newcombe Foundation by providing Newcombe scholarship s for mature adult students seeking to complete bachelor’s degrees at the University. Adult students now comprise a large portion of the enrollment at most colleges and universities, with many of these non-traditional students being mature women.
