Scholarships and grants are awarded from funds donated to the FIT Foundation by many firms, organizations, and individuals.
FIT scholarships, which may carry the name of the donor, are usually awarded to students with superior potential to succeed in their major areas, meet the donor's requirements for the scholarship, and demonstrate high financial need, which is determined by the FAFSA.
Students must complete the FAFSA each year by the January 15th deadline and must maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA. All recipients must be registered for a minimum of 12 credits and continue to be full-time. The average scholarship award is approximately $1,300. If you are eligible to receive one of these scholarships, you will be notified via email by Financial Aid Services and will be required to complete an online scholarship form.
Scholarships are not automatically renewed, based on funding or a change in criteria from year to year.
FIT grants are based on financial need and availability of funds. Renewal is based on full-time enrollment (12 or more credits), maintaining a 2.3 GPA, and availability of funds. Recipients must file for financial aid each academic year by March 1. These grants are limited to four semesters in lower division and four semesters in upper division.
