Trustees Scholarship


For 2014 Graduates:

The Trustees Scholarship at Belmont College offers a tuition-only award to students to cover the cost of up to 6 academic terms after other forms of need-based financial aid have been applied.  Students must enroll at Belmont in the summer or fall semester immediately following high school graduation.  Students must meet residency requirements for Belmont, Harrison, or Monroe Counties and graduate from a high school in one of these Counties.  A successful candidate must meet all scholarship and enrollment requirements.  This scholarship can help with tuition costs and significantly reduce the costs of pursuing an exciting and profitable career. 

To be eligible for the Trustees Scholarship, students must complete the following by the priority deadline of March 31.  After March 31 and before August 28 awards will be made on a first come basis, should funds remain.

Quick Trustees Scholarship checklist:

The Trustees Scholarship covers tuition only.  This Scholarship does not cover fees such as the general fee, the technology fee, and course fees.  Additionally, the Scholarship does not cover books and supplies.  Some students have enough grant money to cover these expenses which is based on your FAFSA results.  The Trustees Scholarship will cover your tuition only after other forms of grant money, such as the Federal Pell Grant have been applied.

Here are examples to show you how the Trustees Scholarship works, and how it can help cover students' tuition only costs:

All amounts in examples are estimates and not necessarily actual amounts of grants or tuition.

Example 1:

Jamie applies to Belmont and completes the FAFSA online by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov. About a month later, the Financial Aid Office gets the results and completes Jamie's financial aid package.  Jamie's FAFSA results gave her an EFC (Expected Family Contribution) of 3550.  With an EFC of 3550 Jamie receives a Federal Pell Grant for the year (Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarter) of $2,100.  Jamie has enrolled in 15 credit hours for Fall Semester at Belmont.

Charges for Fall Semester Financial Aid for Fall Semester
Tuition (15 hrs) $ 1,530.00 Federal Pell Grant $1,050
General Fee $   270.00 Trustees Scholarship $   480.00
Technology Fee $  247.50 Trustees of $480 is from 1530-1550
Total Charges $2,047.50 Total Financial Aid $1,530.00
Jamie has charges of $2,047.50 and financial aid covers $1,530 so Jamie will have a balance due of $517.50 which can be paid with a payment plan, or a federal direct Stafford Loan or other forms of aid.  Jamie can expect a Spring Semester balance of a similar $517.50 also, which means she will get her first year of college for only around $1,035.00!!

Example 2:

John applies to Belmont and completes the FAFSA. About a month later the Financial Aid Office gets the results and completes John's financial aid package.  John's FAFSA results gave him an EFC (Expected Family Contribution) of 0.  With an EFC of 0 John receives a Federal Pell Grant for the year (Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarter) of $5,550.  John has enrolled in 15 credit hrs for Fall Semester at Belmont.

Charges for Fall Semester Financial Aid for Fall Semester
Tuition (15 hrs) $ 1,530.00 Federal Pell Grant $2,750.00
General Fee $   270.00 Trustees Scholarship $   0
Technology Fee $  247.50 Trustees of $0 is because Pell is higher than
tuition or $2,750 is above $1,530.
Total Charges $2,047.50 Total Financial Aid $2,750
John has charges of $2,047.50 and financial aid covers $2,750 so John will not have a balance due and will have $702.50 to use to pay for books & supplies. 

The Trustees Scholarship at Belmont College is by far the best opportunity in the Ohio Valley.  The College encourages all graduating seniors in Belmont, Harrison, and Monroe Counties to apply for this Scholarship and see how affordable the first two years of your college education can be at Belmont!
