Applying for financial assistance is an important step in paying for your education

Get the help that you need

How financial aid works:

Financial aid is money from the federal government, state government, or your school that can help you pay for tuition, labs, room and board, and other living expenses as you attend school. It can come in these forms:

  • Scholarships

  • Grants

  • Work-study

  • Federal student loans

 

While you don’t have to pay back scholarships, grants, and work-study, you will need to repay any federal loans that you borrow for school.

The first step in finding out if you’re eligible for financial aid is filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The USDA/1890 National Scholars Program was established in 1992 as part of the partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the 1890 Land-Grant Universities. The USDA/1890 National Scholars Program is implemented under the USDA Fellows Experience Program (FEP). Scholars accepted into the program will be appointed using the Schedule A(r) authority (5 CFR 213.3202) and may be eligible for noncompetitive conversion to full time employment upon graduation. Successful applicants will receive a temporary appointment to the USDA, not to exceed 4 years. Upon successful completion of the degree requirements and the end of the agreement period, the scholar may be eligible for conversion to permanent appointment in service to USDA without further competition, using the Conversion to Career Conditional Appointment Farm Bill 2018 (5 CFR 213.3102) authority code "ZLM".
