Please Note:

  • Students must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA to be eligible for scholarship funds.
  • Scholarship funds will not be dispersed until FINAL GRADES from the previous semester are submitted.
  • Scholarship funds will not be dispersed until RECEIPTS from the previous semester are submitted. Receipts for ALL payments except tuition paid directly to an institution must be submitted.

If you would like to request scholarship funds for the purchase of a computer, please complete the request form and submit documentation showing the cost of the equipment. AAD will provide a check made payable to the student. After purchase, the student MUST SUBMIT RECEIPTS.

For students attending a community college, documentation must be provided that you are registered three weeks prior to the payment deadline. This policy is to ensure that financial aid is processed by the payment deadline.
