Criteria for Awarding the Scholarship:

Students attending an eligible campus/program, who enroll more than 30 days prior to their start date, have an EFC of 5,500 or less, and who have a proximity** to the campus of at least 50 miles will be eligible for the grant.

If students are eligible for any of the above mentioned programs, as well as the Relocation Grant, they will need to choose which program they wish to accept.
  • Eligibility will be based on the approved FAFSA results sent to the school, called an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) that is on file for the 2021 financial award year. An approved ISIR meeting the EFC criteria must be received by the school no later than 9 days following the student’s start date to be considered eligible.
