The Workforce Improvement Grant is a need based grant for non-traditional students, those at least 24 years old. The program's goal is to help those students returning to school who have financial need but might not be eligible for assistance from traditional state and federal programs. To be eligible, a student must have unmet need after consideration of any Pell Grant awarded and must meet the general eligibility requirements for federal financial aid programs. The annual award is a maximum of $2000 for a student enrolled full time (12 semester hours). Students enrolled part time will have their grants prorated based on the number of hours enrolled. Because the grants are not renewable, students must apply each year. 

Students apply for the Workforce Improvement Grant by completing the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA), through the use of the on-line application.
