SPCS Scholarships

We offer scholarships for adult learners. In fact, the School has distributed nearly $100,000 annually to continuing students in the past several years.

To be eligible for any financial aid, including these scholarships, applicants must complete the FAFSA. As a rule, registration for at least six semester hours per term is also required.

Students may receive scholarship funding once per academic year. Awards are made in the Fall to cover the Fall and Spring terms, and Spring awards are prioritized for new SPCS students — those enrolling in the Spring for the first time.

To be eligible for these SPCS scholarships, applicants must complete the FAFSA by the scholarship deadline.

Previous recipients of an Osher Reentry Scholarship are encouraged to reapply annually.
