Our merit scholarships are designed to reward those students who have been academically dedicated and engaged in their educational experience.
We’ll do everything we can to help you afford Rockford University. That’s why we offer our own grants and loans to supplement your state and federal aid.
The less time you spend worrying about money, the more time you can spend learning and making a difference in the world. We encourage you to check out state and federal financial aid opportunities. Rockford University, in conjunction with the State of Illinois, awards competitive financial aid packages to students – like you – in the form of grants and scholarships. And you don’t have to be from the Prairie State, either. We also offer need-based grants to students from other states, so you can attend Rockford University no matter what state you call home.
There are a number of federal programs available to help you with tuition. These aren’t handouts—some will need to be repaid—but they are a leg-up on dealing with university costs. Bottom line: the less time you spend worrying about money, the more time you can spend learning.
*Maximum amounts are determined by federal guidelines and subject to change.
It’s often been said that hard work is its own reward. We couldn’t agree more. We have numerous opportunities for you to work part time on campus and earn money at the same time. We have both federal and institutional funding. More info about Student Employment opportunities >>
