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 Community College for the 2016-2017 academic year.
The Northeast State Office of Scholarship Programs administers more than 175 Northeast State Foundation-related scholarships to help students pay college expenses. Students should submit the Online General Scholarship Application as well as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). First-time applicants to the College must also complete an application for admission. The application deadline for Foundation-related scholarships is March 1.
Northeast State awards scholarships to qualifying applicants following a competitive review process. 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 Online General 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 program (June 1 deadline).
