When a student withdraws from a class, the scholarship is cancelled and may not be applied to a different term. Cancellations may affect eligibility for future scholarships.
If you are awarded a scholarship that is less than 100% of the tuition cost, payment of your portion of tuition is due by the date listed on your award letter. An A2AC staff member will reach out to you to facilitate this process.
Scholarship funding is made possible by our generous donors. Upon accepting a scholarship, you agree to submit a letter reflecting on your experience and what you valued or gained from it.
