Scholarship assistance is available to eligible students who enroll in an undergraduate program of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or vocational-technical school. Funding for the graduate program will end with the close of the 2020-2021 academic year. Most funds provide scholarship assistance for a maximum of four years or its equivalent, depending on total funding available. Our financial need formula is used to determine award amounts for each eligible student.
