While most students will afford their education using traditional federal grants and loans, there are many opportunities for students to apply for scholarships. A scholarship is funding from a third party that does not need to be repaid. These can be used to help you afford school or reduce the debt burden that you leave school with. Scholarships come in many different forms and are typically classified as need based, merit based, student specific based upon demographics or career specific. The application process varies depending upon the scholarship with some having specific deadlines and varying in application length and depth.
The resources provided on this page will aid you in searching for scholarships, but we also recommend checking with your local community foundations, non-profit agencies and labor and trade organizations.
Stone Academy also provides scholarships for students including:
Matching Scholarship Program
Whenever any full-time student receives a scholarship from any non-profit agency, service club, or similar private organization, Stone Academy will match up to a maximum of $250. To apply for this matching scholarship, students are required to provide proof of the outside scholarship award to the Financial Aid office prior to the registration date for classes.
