This is a one time award to be disbursed in March 2018.

Please note: High School students, college freshmen and sophomores are ineligible for consideration of this award.
A Last Dollar Scholarship is a need-based "gap-filling" award. It is awarded when a family's expected family contribution (EFC) and financial aid package total are less than the cost of attendance thus resulting in unmet financial need. Scholarship awards will vary according to the financial need of each applicant but no more than $5,000.
