Scholarships are based on academic achievement. Because they are merit-based, they are available to every student who qualifies for them—regardless of financial need. The academic merit scholarships offered by Spring Hill range up to $28,000 per year and are described on the scholarships web pages:
Grants are funds that do not have to be repaid. In most cases, you must demonstrate financial need to receive a grant. Grant eligibility is determined by information provided by your FAFSA and can be funded by federal and state governments, as well as Spring Hill College.
Federal student loans are the most affordable loans available to students, with the lowest interest rates and deferred principal and interest payments until after graduation. Spring Hill is a direct lending school, which means you can obtain education loans without using a private lender like a bank or credit union. If you need additional funding, private lenders are an alternative.
Federal work study is a federal program available to qualified students who demonstrate financial need. Students are employed on campus in positions such as classroom assistants, laboratory assistants, recreation assistants, and library assistants. Preference is given to students with the greatest demonstrated need, with the typical student working approximately 6 hours per week.
