Students searching for financial aid to attend college need financial help now more than ever. It’s never too soon to submit a scholarship application to Northeast State for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The Northeast State office of Scholarship Programs administers more than 175 Foundation-related scholarships to help students pay college expenses. Foundation Scholarships may fund maintenance fees and even textbook costs for recipients. Northeast State also administers the Academic Work Scholarship and the Educational Access and Diversity Scholarship programs.
The application deadline for Foundation and Academic Work scholarships is March 1. Northeast State awards scholarships to qualifying applicants following a competitive review process.
The scholarship application qualifies a student only for Foundation and Academic Work scholarship consideration. A separate application must be completed for the Educational Access and Diversity (June 1 deadline) program. Students applying for state or federal financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
