Dominican University to Offer Targeted Scholarships in Response to FAFSA Delays

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Dominican University is continuing its longstanding commitment to removing barriers to education with strategic scholarships aimed at reducing the impact of this year’s problematic FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) rollout. The new scholarships will be made available to student groups who have been disproportionately impacted by the technical challenges and delays. These scholarships are prioritized for selected Black/African American students and children of undocumented/mixed-status parents who are among those in danger of not proceeding with their plans for higher education due to the FAFSA process. Recipients will have nearly all their tuition and housing covered at Dominican’s new Chicago Campus, significantly reducing the financial stress of higher education.  Dominican will offer scholarships to undocumented students or students of undocumented/mixed-status parents who are Illinois residents, and who enroll in the Chicago Campus associate degree program. Up to $19,000 will be provided per student over two years, covering a majority of tuition and housing costs. Interested students should apply to the associate degree program by June 15 to be considered for these scholarships. No additional application is required.
