Incentive Awards?

I've read that certain targeted High Schools have a deserving student awarded this scholarship. Does anyone know how the other "Incentive Awards" are assigned, particularly from the Business School?

    Our D received this award out of the blue. Never heard of it before. UNFORTUNATELY, it looks as if she will be giving up the B/K, Robert C. Byrd, Md Distinguished Scholar, and $5K/yr (Incentive Award) to care for children and teach English another year in Nepal. I've done my best to encourage her to at least start at UMD but it ain't happening.

    Our S has loved his time at UMD. Last semester he studied in Barcelona which he felt was an incredible experience.
