Financial Assistance for Students in MarylanD

Dream   Believe   Achieve

Students often face significant financial challenges throughout their academic life, from the need for quality school supplies to the lack of current technology in the home and the often overwhelming cost of pursuing a college degree. Bursting With Promise is dedicated to the belief that financial support can make a difference in a student’s life. Through our programs, we provide tools and financial resources to help Maryland students succeed in an ever-changing environment. We not only offer deserving students entering Bowie State University (BSU), Coppin State University (CSU), Morgan State University (MSU), and University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) freshman class, but we also provide a community of support and encouragement throughout their undergraduate careers. We provide new laptops and high-quality school supplies through our partnership with local schools to help our students of today become our leaders of tomorrow.

Learn About Bursting with Promise

* Our History and Our Purpose *

Bursting With Promise, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to providing financial assistance annually to qualifying and deserving students entering Bowie State University (BSU), Coppin State University (CSU), Morgan State University (MSU), and University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) freshman class, and to offer other community assistance through worthwhile uplift projects that benefit the local Prince George’s County Maryland schools and communities.

The founding of Bursting With Promise was born of an unfortunate tragedy that occurred in 2015 when a most-promising MSU student, Adedire Ososanya, was struck and killed by a drunk driver while Adedire was heading home to the family during the MSU winter break. My own daughter, an MSU freshman at that time, shared this tragic news with me. I was inspired and committed to doing even more in my own community assistance endeavors as I began to learn more about Adedire and his goals as an MSU student and his tenacity to excel and positively impact his community. The idea for an annual scholarship fund was born in the spring of 2016.

In the fall of 2016, Bursting With Promise was blessed to present its very first scholarship award of $1,000 to an exceptional high school senior who entered MSU as a freshman student. Since the fall of 2016, we have been blessed to award over $40,000 in scholarships, book stipends, grub hub gift cards, and laptops. Additionally, in the spring of 2023, Bursting With Promise is excited to expand our scholarship opportunities to three additional Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).


Bursting With Promise’s commitment and pledge is to continue to help deserving students to further their scholastic endeavors by offering them financial assistance. We graciously thank all who would like to offer support – financial donations, laptops, or school supplies – to further our efforts at providing some small blessing to each and every student we can impact with your generosity.
