Scholarships and Grants
Scholarships and grants may be based on academic merit, financial need, or both.
- Scholarships and grants are exclusively applied to tuition and fees.
- These awards are considered “gift aid” and do not need to be repaid by the student.
Awards may be affected if a student changes his/her on-campus residency or number of credits taken per semester (less than 12 credits per semester).
If federal or state allocation of financial aid funds to Cabrini are adjusted at any time, Cabrini reserves the right to adjust financial aid awards as necessary.
All student's financial aid awards are contingent on availability of funds.
In addition to Cabrini scholarships and grants, many external scholarships are available to students, including (but not limited to) the following:
