About the Scholarship

As the economic conditions have been changing in Massachusetts like in many other states, the students have been re-considering their higher education as it has been more expensive.

In order to help the adult students who are back to college, financially, the Office of Student Financial Assistance of the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education provides the Part-time Grant Program.

The students who are planning to enroll in a college or university as part-time are eligible for this grant program that was introduced by the Commonwealth for meeting the tuition and fees and other college costs.


Massachusetts Part-Time Grant Awards

Eligible recipients receive an amount starting from $200 to an amount depending on the university or college the student is enrolled in, the program of study, and the financial need as demonstrated.
