Associate degree students can use this $1,000 grant to pay for school

Even if you’re enrolled with an associate degree you can still get funding

Associate degree scholarships aren’t the most common ones, but if you look hard enough you’ll find some

Offline or online associate degree programs can definitely help save you money, since they cut your learning time in half. Instead of spending four full years in a program, you’ll commit to only two. But even if you can save money with an offline or online associate degree, doesn’t mean they are inexpensive or that you don’t have to pay at all.

Students attending an offline or online school should know that scholarships are the answer to financial woes. And even if your traditional or online school of choice doesn’t offer funding or has run out of scholarships, you should know there are plenty of associate degree scholarships that may help you cover the cost of tuition and related expenses.

Unlike loans, scholarships and grants are both forms of financial aid which you don’t have to pay back upon graduation. They are most often available directly for tuition, but some also help cover some additional costs. And as you probably know by now, scholarships are awarded based on merit, but also based on other things such as talent in a certain field or a well-written essay.

Or maybe you are part of a certain class of individuals – for example people who have an affiliation with a certain company or those who are part of the military. If that’s the case, you might be able to find funding with organizations seeking to support these individuals.

For example, if you are part of the Marine Corps or are a veteran and you want to pursue an associate degree online, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation can help you secure funding to pay for your education.

On top of that you need to have a minimum GPA of 2.0, as well as a family adjusted gross income for the 2016 tax year that does not exceed $96,000.

Note that applicants pursuing a full undergraduate degree, second bachelor degree or graduate school are not eligible to apply for this funding.

Another scholarship for associate degree students is the one offered by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society to its struggling financial members who are seeking to enter an associate degree program.

Take note that only Phi Theta Kappa members in good standing are eligible to apply for this one. On top of that you need to demonstrate a minimum GPA of 3.0.

The Oberndorf Lifeline to Completion Scholarship is open for students who have encountered an unanticipated financial barrier on their road to gain a degree such as loss, natural disaster or complete loss of income.

Students can earn up to $1,000 if they are chosen by the Phi Theta Kappa committee. The scholarship is open twice a year with a Spring term and Fall term. At this moment you can submit your application. The scholarship program is accepting submissions until December 1, 2017.

The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is home to other scholarship programs for Associate students and we recommend you browse through them all to see if there are others you could apply to.
