Additional Information: Demographic changes impacting current and future student population have a direct relationship to the number of part-time students who seek higher education. In Massachusetts, as in some other states, the number of part-time students has grown due to shifts in the states' demographic and economic conditions. More adults now find themselves needing to return to the classroom on a less than full-time basis. The continuous increase in college costs is also requiring more students to reconsider their enrollment plans and to look at part-time programs as viable alternatives. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has recognized the above needs and established the Part-Time Grant Program to serve as a bridge between higher education opportunities and those segments of the Massachusetts population. Eligible recipients must have an Expected Family contribution (EFC) of $4,995 or less. The EFC is determined from information provided on the FAFSA according to program guidelines and under Federal methodology need analysis criteria.

Award Amount: Award amounts range from $200 to $950 annually, based on the type of institution the recipient attends. Awards are disbursed in two payments for the fall and spring semesters and maybe be renewed for up to three additional years. Recipients must continue to demonstrate financial need and must reapply each year.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $2,300.
