As part of the Delaware Department of Education, the Delaware Higher Education Office works to ensure that postsecondary education is accessible and affordable for Delaware residents by providing information and financial assistance to students and their families. We administer 14 state-sponsored financial aid programs, which include grants, scholarships and professional incentive programs. One of the awards offered is called the Scholarship Incentive Program.
