Scholarships for Students at The American Women's College

Scholarships are essentially free money—financial aid that does not have to be repaid. Most scholarships are merit-based while grants are often need-based. In 2019, The American Women's College is pleased to offer the following new scholarships!


STARTUP Scholarships for All Majors

Made possible by a generous grant from the Strada Education Network, $500 STARTUP scholarships will help support recipients with the costs of fall 2019 enrollment at The American Women's College of Bay Path University.

There are no restrictions on majors for this scholarship - all intended majors are welcomed!

Submit your STARTUP scholarship application - and your admissions application - by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 19, 2019.


 


Jeannette Rankin Women's Scholarship Fund

The Jeannette Rankin Foundation has generously donated scholarships for incoming women students at The American Women's College. These $1000 scholarships will provide support to non-traditional women in pursuit of a bachelor's degree in Cybersecurity.

Made possible by a generous grant from the Strada Education Network, the $1000 Jeannette Rankin scholarships will help support recipients with the costs of fall 2019 enrollment in the Cybersecurity degree program at The American Women's College of Bay Path University.

$500 REBOOT Scholarships for Community College Transfers

If you are a student currently enrolled at a community college, or about to graduate from one, and you wish to transfer to The American Women’s College to obtain your bachelor’s degree in Cybersecurity, one of these scholarships could be yours!

Made possible by a generous grant from the Strada Education Network, the $500 REBOOT scholarships will help support recipients with the costs of fall 2019 enrollment in the Cybersecurity degree program at The American Women's College of Bay Path University.

Submit your REBOOT scholarship application - and your admissions application - by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 19, 2019.

 


Even if you receive scholarships and/or grants, you are still encouraged to explore additional available resources. Many scholarship monies go unclaimed because the right candidate did not research and apply for the funds.

You can also visit your local public library and ask the reference desk staff for information on scholarship opportunities available in your region or area of special interest.


Don’t fall prey to scholarship scams!

We advise students and families to be very cautious when applying for outside scholarships. Do not provide organizations with sensitive information or an application fee. For more information on protecting your information and avoiding scholarship scams, this article by the Federal Trade Commission is a great resource.

If you do receive a scholarship, please forward the appropriate documentation to the Student Financial Services Office so the award may be included in your financial aid package.


How scholarship funds may be applied to your aid package

When the Student Financial Services Office is notified that a student will be receiving an outside scholarship, they will first attempt to add the scholarship to the financial aid package and not reduce any other financial aid funds - as long as the student’s aid package has then not exceeded the cost of attendance. 

If the student’s financial aid package does exceed the cost of attendance with the outside scholarship(s), the student's financial aid package must be adjusted.  The Student Financial Services Office will first reduce student loans, followed by federal work-study funds before they decrease or eliminate any scholarships or grants offered by the University, the state of Massachusetts, or the federal government.
