SCHOLARSHIP RULES FOR A TECHNICAL/VOCATIONAL PROGRAM *
Scholarship applies to students graduating from Neodesha High School beginning with the class of 2020.
Funding for another non-associate degree technical/vocational institutions or technical certification programs and rules will be similar to those for associate degree programs.
* To receive a scholarship award, the institution must be Pell Grant approved.
An applicant that does not qualify for the Bachelor's Degree Award, but qualifies for the Associate's Degree Award will need to complete one year at a community college/technical school prior to transferring their scholarship to a university.
Students are allowed to use their scholarship to take summer classes pending Program Administrator approval after one year of classes. The student is required to complete the summer class application form available under applications.
COMMUNITY SERVICE BONUS
Students who complete 100 hours of community service will receive a 5% increase in their award per year.
SECOND PAYOR PROGRAM RULES
The Neodesha Promise Scholarship is a second payer program. Promise awards will be reduced by 25% of the total of Pell Grants and other scholarship awards that exceed $2,000.For example, if the student receives a $3,000 scholarship award or grant, the Promise award would be reduced by $750. If other scholarships and grant awards cover the entire cost of the student’s first year of post-secondary education, they can defer receiving the Promise award to their second year. But the 120 credit hour or 60 credit hour cap would still apply.
EXPENSES NOT COVERED BY THIS PROGRAM
Room and board, transportation, books, and non-mandatory fees are not covered expenses. Those expenses are the responsibility of the student.
The Neodesha Promise Scholarship Program reserves the right to change the standards of this program if warranted.
