Financial Aid

A.C.T. offers a limited number of need- and merit-based scholarships to students enrolled in the 5- or 7-week session only. The maximum award ranges from $500 to $1,000 per student. Students enrolled only in the 2-week session are not eligible to apply for a scholarship. While no federal or state aid—such as a Pell Grant or a Stafford Loan—is available for the STC, A.C.T. can work with your current college to develop a consortium agreement if you are eligible.

Students applying for an A.C.T. scholarship must complete their STC enrollment application package and submit an online 2019–20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (available at by April 12, 2019. Private educational loans are also available if you qualify.
