  • Scholarship Description
  • In Massachusetts, as in some other states, the number of part-time students has grown due to changes in demographic and economic conditions. More adults now find themselves needing to return to the classroom on a less than full-time basis. The continuous increase in college costs is also requiring more students to reconsider their enrollment plans and to look at part-time programs as viable alternatives. The Commonwealth has recognized the above needs and established the Part-Time Grant Program to serve as a bridge between higher education opportunities and those segments of the Massachusetts population.

    To be eligible for a Massachusetts Part-Time Grant, a student must:
    -Be a permanent legal resident of Massachusetts for at least one year prior to the start of the academic year for which the grant is awarded
    -Be a U.S. Citizen or non-citizen eligible under Title IV regulations
    -Have applied for financial aid, using the standard Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
    -Be in compliance with Selective Service Registration
    -Not be in default of any federal or state Student Loans for attendance at any institution or owe a refund for any previous financial aid received
    -Be enrolled for at least six (or the equivalent) but fewer than 12 undergraduate credits per academic term in an eligible undergraduate degree program or eligible certificate program
    -Not have received a prior bachelor's degree or professional degree or their equivalent
    -Be maintaining satisfactory academic progress in accordance with institutional and federal standards
    -Demonstrate financial aid need as determined by the federal methodology need analysis criteria
