Financial Aid

Need-based federal financial aid (Pell grants, Stafford loans, etc.), for financial aid eligible students, is available from JYF, in complement to financial aid you may receive through your home college or university. State grants (from such states as Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and the District of Columbia) may also be available. We encourage you to find other sources of funding as well.

Application Process
