Types of Financial Assistance
|BMCC offers three types of financial aid:|
|Scholarships: Non-repayable money usually based on academic performance and demonstration financial need.|
|Grants: Non-repayable money usually based upon demonstration financial need.|
|College Work Study: Part-time work during the school year and full-time work during vacation periods. Evidence of financial need is usually a requirement.|
These types of assistance are often combined to form a financial aid “Package”. The aid “package” is designed to make up any difference between the school expenses and the expected family contribution. In the packaging process, each eligible student may receive scholarship and/or grant aid, as well as work-study student funds.
