USF Offering Financial Fresh Start Award To Displaced Students

To assist students recently displaced by the closure of several local for profit colleges, the University of Saint Francis is launching a program that will offer these students a fresh start on their education.

Former students of ITT Technical Institute, MedTech and Brown Mackie College will be eligible for a $2,500 annual scholarship award to attend USF in addition to other awards for which they may qualify. The student must attend USF full time to be eligible for this renewable scholarship.

“We understand how stressful and frustrating this time must be for the affected students,” said USF AVP for Enrollment, JP Spagnolo. “The University of Saint Francis is ready to help these students fulfill their dreams of an associate or bachelor degree or higher. The fresh start scholarship will help make that transition a little easier for them.”

In addition to this award, students may apply for additional merit based scholarships or need-based grant funding. More information about financial aid opportunities is available through USF Enrollment Services at 260-399-7700 or admissions.
