Scholarships

Each student at the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) has a different reason for wanting to enhance their life through academics. Whatever the motivation, SCPS has curated several scholarship opportunities to support their academic pursuits and we encourage our students to review the several opportunities we have available.

To be considered for an SCPS scholarship, students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the current academic year.

Additionally, If you are a student who is undocumented, the greater University has curated several scholarship and financial opportunities designed to support you. You can find more information about these opportunities, as seen below under “Additional Resources.”
