An Institutional scholarship encompasses multiple categories and has one scholarship application award. The scholarships in this category are eligible to be awarded together, but students cannot exceed the overall scholarship maximum of $7,500 in a residential diploma program or $15,000 in a residential Associate Degree program. Scholarships listed in this category are as follows (for the documentation requirements for these categories, please refer to the actual scholarship applications)
- Passion Award

Student Veteran Scholarship:
The Student Veteran Scholarship may be stacked with the Institutional scholarship category, but cannot exceed the overall scholarship maximum of $7,500 in a residental diploma program or $15,000 in a residental Associate Degree program.
A student that is eligible for Veterans Benefits (i.e., Chapter 33, 30, etc.) is eligible for the Veterans Scholarship without completing a FAFSA. Our Veteran scholarship is not limited to tuition but eligible for any institutional expense.
