The "Last-Dollar" Scholarship

To bridge the gap between the total amount of financial aid for which a family qualifies and the final cost of attending college, ACCESS College Foundation awards “Last-Dollar” Scholarships to qualified high school seniors. This scholarship is renewable for up to four years.

Since 1988, the foundation has awarded $10 million in ACCESS “Last-Dollar” Scholarships to students.

Application for 2017-18 year will reopen on March 1, 2018.
