Financial Aid | Scholarships
Scholarships are money available to college students from various community organizations and businesses. They are competitively awarded to applicants based on academic or other specific submissions and achievements. Ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars, scholarships can help cushion the cost of books and supplies or can fund your entire semester’s tuition.
Different scholarships are available at different times throughout the year, so it is important to check this page regularly.
