Qasid Institute Scholarship
Additionally, one Hunter applicant, who has paid his/her deposit and been accepted to the program, will be selected for a partial scholarship to the program ($1,500), thanks to the generosity of the Qasid Institute.
The scholarship will be awarded in the form of a program fee discount. The scholarship winner will be chosen based on financial need (with academic record acting as a tie breaker). No separate scholarship application is necessary but the EFC (Estimated Family Contribution) that appears in your FAFSA report should be provided, in order to establish financial need.
After submitting your program application, applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: Jordan Winter 2023-2024 Scholarship EFC) with your FAFSA/EFC included as an attachment.
