Zenith Student Grant
(Applies to Blairsville, Daytona Beach, and Laramie campuses only)
The Zenith Student Grant is a multimillion-dollar institutional grant program awarded on an annual basis to students of Everest and WyoTech schools owned by Zenith Education Group who demonstrate financial need.* This institutional grant is available for new and continuing students enrolled on or after February 3, 2015 for current and future academic periods. The amount and source of the grant, which can be up to $10,000 per academic year, may vary by student based on:
- The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as calculated by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and reported to the student via the Student Aid Report (SAR)
- The demonstrated financial assistance needed
- Institutional grant funding availability
The grant may be used to cover any confirmed unmet financial need in excess of the student’s EFC once Title IV and all other available funding sources have been exhausted up to the direct cost of attendance for the program in which the student is enrolled.
To be eligible, the student must:
- Apply each academic year
- Meet all application deadlines
- Maintain satisfactory academic progress throughout his/her course of study
- Be able to receive federal Title IV financial aid
Obtaining grant funds
The grant will automatically be credited to your account upon completion of the financial aid application processes and award confirmation. The grant is non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash.
Renewing the grant
Students must reapply each academic year by the institutional deadline and meet eligibility requirements in order to be considered for the Zenith Education Grant. The grant amount may change each year based on the student’s:
- Determined financial need
- Timeliness of his/her financial aid application
- Institutional grant funding availability
