Scholarship Opportunities

As a student at Protégé Academy, there are scholarship opportunities you may be eligible for. Most scholarships are offered to students at the time of admissions and students are made aware of any opportunities prior or at the time of enrollment.

About Protégé Academy Scholarshipsfinancial-guy.jpg

Scholarships are financial aid assistance that does not need to be repaid. They may be awarded based on need, excellence in academics, and excellence in attendance, or a combination of both. The aid may be given by the federal or state government, by Protégé Academy, or by a private donor.

Applying for Federal Student Aid

Our financial aid office uses the information from the FAFSA to determine if your eligibility for federal student aid, including grants and loans. Protégé Academy recommends every one interested in our cosmetology program fill out a FAFSA www.fafsa.ed.gov, even if you think you won't qualify.

Before beginning the FAFSA, you’ll need to apply for a Federal Student Aid Identification number (FSA ID) at fsaid.ed.gov. The FSA ID will allow you to sign your FAFSA electronically and later to access your processed FAFSA online. After you receive the FSA ID assigned to you, we recommend you change it to something easy to remember. Don't share your FSA ID with anyone! If you are providing parent information on the FAFSA, one of your parents also must sign your application. To sign electronically, your parent must apply for his or her own FSA ID.

Gather Required Information

Complete Your Application

Enter all necessary information at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. If you need help, there are help links on each page of the online application.

Submit Your Application

After you submit your application, make sure you receive a confirmation number. This number tells you your application has been successfully submitted. Keep this confirmation number for your records.

Follow Up on Your FAFSA

Your application will be processed and you will receive an e-mail with a link to your Student Aid Report (SAR). If you did not provide an e-mail address, you will receive your SAR by mail. You should review your SAR for any necessary corrections or updates.

Notification that Protégé Academy has Received Your Processed Information

You will receive a notification from our administration once we have received your processed FAFSA application by both phone and e-mail. If you have not provided your e-mail on the FAFSA you will only receive a phone call. If you have any questions on your FAFSA application with Protégé Academy contact our financial aid department at (517) 324-3388.
