Seidel scholarship recipients have gone on to earn degrees in fields such as Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education and Secondary & Physical Education, and Outdoor Education. Moriah Davidson, Class of 2016 said, "The scholarship provided to me by alumni donors, allowed me to pursue my goal of obtaining a degree in elementary education. The generosity of Salisbury University alumni will leave me forever grateful as I work with children in my dream career."
For several years, SU's financial aid package has offered one of the lowest percentages of scholarships and the highest percentage of loans when compared to other University System of Maryland schools. Scholarships are in need of financial support from alumni to lessen the financial burden of current students.
