Whether you are considering an apprenticeship, a certificate, a diploma or a degree program, post-secondary education costs money and you need to be prepared for the expense. Scholarships can be a great way to help finance the expense. It's important to note that scholarships are typically based on conditional acceptance from a post-secondary institution, as scholarships are meant to help pay for school. You do not have to be fully accepted into a program at the time you apply for scholarships, but you do not get the money until you actually attend school.

Deadlines are just around the corner!

Loran Award - October 1 (Internal Notre Dame deadline for sponsored applicants. See website for other important Loran deadlines.)

Post-Secondary Entrance Awards

For students planning to attend post-secondary programs in the fall, entrance awards are available through the institution you will be attending. Entrance awards can be a great source of money to pay for school. Check with your institution directly for information as deadlines and application processes vary by school. Good luck!
