On March 1, a new cycle of Donor Sponsored Scholarships open for Harper students. These scholarships are through Harper’s Educational Foundation. There are 170 different scholarships, and more than $600K goes to Harper students for tuition, books, and fees. Scholarships are for financial need (about 50 of the scholarships), program of study, or merit based. Visit the Financial Aid page on the Harper website, or go to https://harpercollege.academicworks.com/ to access the scholarship system directly.

Please encourage your students to apply for scholarships. Often it is one or two people that are being considered for a scholarship that meet the requirements. There are also scholarships that apply towards a student’s transfer 4-year school.

Scholarship Day is Thursday, March 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Educational Foundation and Mobile Unit will be in Avante (on the side closest to Building Y) to promote scholarship opportunities to students. Stop by to learn what scholarships are available for your students.
