Adult Student Aid Program
For independent students, typically age 24 and older, looking to upgrade skills or work toward an undergraduate degree.
Preference for funding is given in the following order to: (1) students who have previously received funding through this program and have successfully completed prior educational work; (2) students with the least amount of higher education or training, but who are poised to take advantage of an educational opportunity; and (3) students who are single parents. Funding for graduate study is not available through this program.
Awards typically range from $100 to $500 per application period, depending on the cost of individual educational program. The maximum award over three terms is $1,500. Occasionally, a larger award may be made to meet an extraordinary circumstance.
