What type of financial assistance is available to help me pay for
The addiction studies certificate is eligible for the
short-term certificate grant available to students with
demonstrated financial need as well as students who are
currently in or exiting foster care. Each student may receive a
one-time grant of up to $2,000 to assist with tuition and fees
(does not include the cost of books and supplies). To be
considered, students must submit and satisfy the requirements on
Certificate Grant Application or the Short-term
Certificate Foster Youth Grant Application.
Every student is also encouraged to complete a Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for grants,
scholarships and loans.
Students who complete a FAFSA are automatically considered for
some scholarships. Other scholarships
require an application.
