Outside Scholarships

 

We realize that every extra dollar helps in paying for college. Student Financial Services is constantly reviewing information from private organizations to uncover scholarship opportunities that students might not otherwise apply for. We encourage you to stop by our office for more information.

Students who are awarded "outside" scholarships that may be applied to their total costs will have the funds added to their financial aid packages; this may allow us to reduce their loans or adjust their packages.

The Titan Web Agency Bi-Annual Scholarship Program

At Titan Web Agency, we believe it’s our responsibility to give back to the community and help those looking to build a business and are in financial need. We’re specifically looking to help students who come with a desire to own their own business, and with a financial need. Recently, tuition fees have been surpassing the rate of inflation. Higher education is becoming more expensive. And the College Board reports that the average tuition fee for a public four-year university is over $9,000. This figure does not include textbooks, computers, lab fee’s etc. So twice every year we will be awarding $500 to students to help them receive the education they deserve. We know it isn’t a great deal of money, but we are hoping that it will help the person who is awarded the scholarship.
