Project Advance offers financial assistance to eligible students. Eligibility is primarily based on federal guidelines for low-income families. However, students who are experiencing unexpected financial hardships, such as a sudden loss of employment in the household or sudden military deployment, should also consider applying. Funding is limited and applications are considered on a rolling basis.
Once submitted, the decision will be sent to both the student and parent via email. If approved, students will receive anywhere from a 50%-70% reduction in tuition. The application for financial assistance only needs to be submitted once per academic year.
- Brief (under 500 words) personal statement describing your financial situation (ie- why are you applying for aid) AND
- The most recent 1040 Federal Income Tax Form filed in the household (ie- for 2021 academic year, please submit the 1040 from 2020)
Students and/or their parents/guardians can apply for financial aid in two ways:
- Log in to PASS and fill out the form under Financial Aid on the left hand menu
- Download and complete the Student Financial Assistance Application form and return it with the required documentation.
If you have any questions about financial assistance eligibility, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
