- Federal Pell Grant
This grant is based on your family's income and assets. In 2015-2016, the Pell award ranged from $290 to $5,775. The student must meet all eligibility requirements. The amount of the grant is based on enrollment status and is divided equally among the semesters attended. To apply, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
This grant is awarded to students entering in the fall, with exceptional financial need. The annual award is $2,000. The student must meet all eligibility requirements. To apply, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov
- Vocational Rehabilitation Grants
State governments provide funds through vocational rehabilitation grants for people with disabilities pursuing postsecondary education. The amount of the grant varies by state, and can be received for any semester. Further information can be found by reviewing the publication, entitled Vocational Rehabilitation Services: Consumer Guide for Postsecondary Students [PDF] (Heath Resources, 1996). Please contact your state's Vocational Rehabilitation Center for additional information and to apply.
Some of our students are able to supplement their income and reduce costs by finding employment during their enrollment.
- Federal Work Study Program: Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a type of financial aid designed to assist needy students with the cost of college. Students who participate in Federal Work-Study (FWS) can earn up to $1,000.00 a year. The FWS program has limited funds; therefore, we do not have the resources to offer a FWS position to every needy student who applies. To qualify, a student must be enrolled at least half-time (six or more credits per semester), maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress, and demonstrate adequate financial need as determined by the Financial Aid Office upon student completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov and submission of all other requested documents. Students awarded FWS need to apply for available positions on campus, which are typically posted at the beginning and end of each semester.
- Landmark College Works: Landmark College Works is a campus employment program that helps students gain professional skills through campus employment while also helping students make connections between work and their academics. While students with Federal Work-Study receive preference in the hiring process on campus, there are positions available for students without FWS, particularly in student leadership (e.g., campus ambassador, resident assistant, orientation leader).
