Federal Financial Aid:
  The free application for Federal Student Aid is available every year on January 1st.  Usually, the deadline for the application is June 30th. The amount of aid or scholarship one receives will depend on what the scholarship office decides, by looking at his/her family income and contribution toward his/her studies.

Herter Memorial Scholarship Grant: The scholarship is state-supported and provides aid to Commonwealth students who show excellent academic talent and promise.  It especially targets students with a weak socio-economic background and other challenging problems that inhibit their future growth.
