Grants and scholarships, commonly referred to as “gift aid” is free money that can be used to help pay expenses for your education. The money can come from a variety of places – federal or state governments, Schreiner University, or miscellaneous outside sources.

Schreiner University offers all three versions: merit based aid, need based aid and performance based aid. In this way, we insure that every student has the capability of receiving some form of “free money” to help pay for their education.

In additional to institutional programs, we offer an outside scholarship program where our Financial Aid office actively works with students applying for outside scholarships.
