Home to the prestigious universities, colleges and other educational institutions of the country like the Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston College, and the University of Massachusetts, the state of Massachusetts offers a huge number of scholarship opportunities to its students. The federal government, the Massachusetts State Corporation, private companies, organizations, universities, colleges, and other educational associations offer scholarships to the permanent residents of the state as well as those who are enrolled in or planning to enroll in one of the educational institutions of Massachusetts state. Due to the rapid rise in college costs, students who belong to families with low incomes are forced to give up their educational dreams. To realize these dreams, these scholarships are provided which help in the funding of the costs with ease.

Financial aids are basically available as student loans, scholarships, work-study programs, and need-based and merit-based grants. The students are obliged to pay back the money they receive as student loans and need-based grants after their course of education. Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit, and other achievements as well as the financial need of the students. Different scholarships have different conditions. The work-study programs are offered by several associations including the federal government to students to help them earn their learning, hence leaving them no educational debts.

Though the criteria vary among scholarships, the basic criteria remain the same. Some of the basic eligibility criteria are as follows:

  • You must be a citizen or an eligible non-citizen of the United States.

  • You must be a permanent resident or a legal non-resident of the state of Massachusetts.

  • You must be enrolled or planning to enroll in one of the accredited universities, colleges, or technical or vocational schools.

The state of Massachusetts is well-known for the diverse educational opportunities offered in institutions like Tufts University, Amherst College, liberal arts colleges like Hampshire College and Clark University. As the state considers education very relevant, a wide range of scholarships are awarded on the basis of the academic status as well as the financial status of the students.
