Financial Aid and Scholarships
The 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form for financial aid is now available for the fall 2020 semester. To maximize funding opportunities and allow yourself sufficient time for financial planning, complete your FAFSA early.
Applicants who submitted a completed EMPH application in SOPHAS by February 15 will automatically be considered for EMPH scholarship awards. Scholarships are competitive and limited. Award amounts vary depending on scholarship type, applicant pool, and committee recommendations. Award notifications will begin in May and continue until all funds are disbursed.
