Is Need Based?
- The dollar amount of each scholarship will be determined each semester by HSF by totaling the actual cost for Tuition and Fees, the estimated cost for Room and Board published by the school, and $500 for Books and Supplies; then, deducting one-half of the dollar amount of the recipient’s FAFSA Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and the dollar amount of ALL grants, scholarships, awards and waivers obtained by or awarded to the recipient.
- The scholarship award amount can be increased subsequent semesters to offset the expiration of other scholarships, grants and awards received by recipient.
- Recipients will be provided with a $10,000 Schwab Brokerage Account the fall semester of their sophomore year. See Schwab Account.
- Recipients achieving a 3.50 CGPA after their sophomore year of college will be eligible to apply for an $8,000 Study Abroad Award. See Study Abroad.
Each scholarship is renewable for up to seven additional semesters if the recipient fulfills the renewal criteria, attends the mandatory workshops, and fulfills their Schwab Account responsibilities. There is no limit to the number of credit hours a recipient can earn during the term of their scholarship.
