Scholarship and Grant Opportunities and Information



To be eligible for the Stevens Grant, you must qualify for the Federal Pell Grant and submit all requested paperwork to the Financial Aid Office no later than October 1st.  If you are still in the process of completing your Financial Aid Application, you must have this done by October 1st to qualify for the Stevens Grant.  Please stop by our office in Hartzell 105 if you need any assistance in completing this process.




Office of Financial Aid


Students attending Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology who wish to receive financial aid, in addition to meeting other eligibility criteria, must be in good academic standing and making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) in their degree or certificate program. SAP will be reviewed at the end of each term or semester once grades are posted. If a grade change should occur after this process, the students' progress will be revaluated. Students who fail to make progress will first be placed on a Financial Aid Warning for SAP. Students who fail to make progress on a semester they are on warning will become ineligible for Financial Aid until they have met the SAP requirements. Future financial aid disbursements will be on hold until SAP requirements are satisfied. Students may appeal being ineligible for failure to meet SAP requirements. If an appeal is granted, the student will be placed on Financial Aid Probation for SAP. Any student who fails to meet the requirements of SAP while on probation will become ineligible for Financial Aid until they have met all SAP requirements. This cannot be appealed.
The link below will show you the three areas in which you must be making progress.
In addition to the Federal Regulations listed above, students receiving a PHEAA State Grant must also make progress.  Students must successfully pass 12 credits each semester they receive a State Grant or a total of 24 credits during the academic year in which they receive a State Grant.
Should you have any questions, please email us at or stop by our office in room 105 of the Hartzell Building.


Every 6 months (a caregiving website) will award $1,500 each to 3 students going to school while caring for a relative or loved one.

The deadline for the next round of our 
Student-Caregiver Scholarship is Dec. 31st. The application can be found here:
