In May 2020, the Clara Freshour Nelson Foundation donated funds to Landmark College to be used over a two-year period as scholarships for undergraduate students who are first-year associate degree candidates or transfers who are within two years of completing a degree; as well as individuals participating in the College’s Online Dual Enrollment Program for high school and transition/gap year students.
- Federal Pell Grant
This grant is based on your family’s income and assets. In 2017 – 2018, the Pell award ranged from $606 to $5,920. 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).
Landmark College Over Award policy
Landmark College students are required to report to the Landmark College Office of Financial Aid all anticipated outside resources; including any scholarships, grants, fellowships, tuition benefits, veteran benefits, or any other type of financial resources.
In certain instances, these outside resources or awards may reduce eligibility for other financial aid or loans. Generally, total financial aid will not exceed the cost of attendance (tuition and any fees, room, board, and books) which would result in an over-award.
When a Landmark College student becomes eligible for additional outside financial support above the cost of attendance resulting in an over-award, that revenue may be used to reduce any Landmark College institutional scholarship.
