Current and prospective Chipola College students have access to a variety of financial aid options.
All students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Application (FAFSA) as soon as possible. Nov. 19, is the deadline to complete the FAFSA for students planning to use Federal Financial Aid to pay for Spring 2021 classes.
Students must complete the FAFSA in order to qualify for Pell, Work Study and other Federal Financial Aid. The FAFSA takes several days to process; therefore, students are encouraged to submit all electronic forms as soon as possible. For information, call 850-718-2366 or visit www.fafsa.gov
Other financial assistance also is available through the Chipola College Foundation. McLendon Educational Trust Scholarship applications for the Spring 2021 semester will be accepted until funds are depleted. Only one McLendon Scholarship award will be made per student for Spring 2021. Applicants must complete the application and provide: a student letter, college and/or high school transcripts and the previous year’s household income tax returns. The scholarship selection is based on both financial need as well as merit.
Applications for the First Generation in College Scholarship is Nov.18. Students must have applied for Federal Pell Grant (FAFSA) and have been determined to be Pell eligible and still have unmet financial need. Students must come from a family where neither parent has completed a bachelor’s degree. Students must submit a personal letter with the application.
Applications for the Edward K. Roberts Community College Fund Scholarship are due Nov.18. Preference will be given to low income students who do not qualify for other financial aid and who are parents (both single and married).
