State Aid

Several states in the New England region offer state grants or scholarships that may be used while attending Lasell College. Most states use the FAFSA information to determine eligibility for this funding, and most have deadlines by which the FAFSA must be received for processing in order to qualify. If a student misses this deadline, Lasell College cannot make up for the loss of this funding in the financial aid package. It is advisable to file the FAFSA as soon after January 1st of each year as possible in order to ensure consideration and eligibility for all forms of financial aid. The following states have reciprocal agreements with Massachusetts:

Connecticut
Rhode Island 
Vermont
Maryland
New Jersey
Pennsylvania

Massachusetts State Grant

Massachusetts residents must file the FAFSA by May 1st of each year in order to be considered for the Mass State Grant. If a student is eligible for this funding, it will appear in the financial aid package. Students may also be considered for the Gilbert Grant, which is a limited pool of state sponsored grant funding. Lasell College usually limits this award to the neediest students.

Gilbert Grant

Gift aid funded by the State of Massachusetts. Funds are awarded to Pell eligible students who meet state residency requirements.
