Scholarships


A limited number of scholarships are available to offset the cost of the program.Thanks to the generosity of Gary and Andrea Powell, Aggies Elevated offers two $1,500 scholarships each fall. Preference is given to children of educators, and to those who demonstrate financial need. A separate application form is required, and may be requested during Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR) in June.
