State Scholarships

Several states provide grant and scholarship money that can be applied towards educational purposes. Some states do not allow their funds to be used out of state. ENC may not receive notification of the award until after school begins. Consequently, students should be aware that aid may be adjusted when the official notification is received from the state agency. Generally only the FAFSA is required for students to be considered; however, some states may require other forms. Students should check with their state Department of Education or local secondary school guidance office on this matter. State deadlines can be as early as March 1. May 1 is the application deadline for many state grant programs, however, students should check the Deadlines for State Student Aid section of the FAFSA instructions to be sure about state deadlines.

The states offering reciprocal grants with Massachusetts are Pennsylvania and Vermont.
