Applications for Fall and Spring semesters are available starting in March each year and run through the end of September. The completed forms must be returned to the Financial Aid Office and you must have a completed and eligible FAFSA application on file with our school before you will be considered for a scholarship. Scholarship determinations are made at the end of October each year after the scholarship committee has met.  All applicants will be notified by mail or email once recipients are chosen.
