Scholarships and Financial Aid

Our Financial Assistance Program operates under the basic principle that paying for higher education is the responsibility of the family, which is why the majority of funds are granted according to economic need. This principle allows for the distribution of resources equitably and within federal, state, and institutional guidelines.

Any student interested in applying for financial assistance for their studies must complete a Federal Pell Grant application (FAFSA). This application can be obtained from our office by calling (787) 766-1717, by fax at (787) 751-0992, or through the Internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov. We recommend that the student submit the application to our office so that it can be processed electronically and a reply can be received in the days to come.
