To qualify, the student must be a Massachusetts resident, enrolled part-time (6-11 credits) and not have a prior bachelor’s degree.
Awards are made on a funds-available basis.
Scholarships are a wonderful source of funding as they do not need to be repaid. The key to obtaining scholarships is to seek them out actively and once identified, invest the time to apply.
Locally and nationally, a wide array of for-profit and non-profit organizations offer scholarships. For example, one student shared that they applied for and received a scholarship from a national non-profit group whose members are other adoptees from their birth country. This same student also applied for and received a scholarship from their town’s scholarship foundation.
Look near and far to identify scholarships for which you are eligible to apply. Consider: your or your family members workplace(s); organizations to which you and your family members belong (houses of worship; community centers; arts organizations; sports organizations; etc. etc.) — the possibilities are countless!

|Federal Direct Stafford Loan||

Maximum annual loan limits
Requirement for first-time borrowers
|Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)||
To qualify, the student must be enrolled at least half-time (at least six credits) and be a dependent of their parents. Loan not based on financial need. Parents must be credit-worthy and can apply at https://studentaid.gov/plus-app/parent/landing
|Private Educational Loans||
We encourage students to borrow with federal loans before applying for private educational loans because the interest rates may be more favorable.
Students who have borrowed up to their limit of federal loans may want to consider borrowing with a private educational loan. Keep in mind that interest rates typically vary based on the borrower’s credit rating. Consider adding a co-signer with a strong credit history, as it typically results in a lower interest rate and a higher chance of approval.
Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federally subsidized program that provides job opportunities to help students with educational expenses.
To qualify, the student must have completed the FAFSA and demonstrate financial need.
