New Start Friends & Alumni Scholarships
For student participants who do not meet Pell eligibility but still have need for financial assistance, there are the New Start Friends & Alumni Scholarships. Funded by private donors and community grants, this scholarship can pay up to the total costs of New Start. To be eligible, you must have completed both 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 FAFSAs and have not qualified for a summer Pell grant. Applications for the New Start Friends and Alumni Scholarship open in March and students will be awarded in mid to late May.
Please remember that both FAFSAs must be completed in order for you to be considered for this scholarship opportunity. More information about the FAFSAs can be found here.
