Stevens Need-Based Aid

We know that sometimes, when all other sources of aid have been exhausted, a little extra support can make all the difference. That’s why we’re proud to offer The Stevens Grant every year as a form of special assistance to students with financial need.

Who receives the Stevens Grant?

If all possible sources of grants and scholarships have been applied to your financial aid package and you still demonstrate a high financial need, Stevens may decide to award you The Stevens Grant. This type of assistance is only available to full-time undergraduates, and if you are awarded the grant, your eligibility is reassessed each year based on your financial need and annual FAFSA submission.

How do I apply?

  1. File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For 23-24 you can file a FAFSA as early as October 1. You may complete the 24-25 FAFSA by December 31. The priority deadline for Early Action, ED I students, and ED II students is February 1. The deadline for filing the FAFSA for returning students is May 15.

  2. Make sure to enter Stevens' school code on the FAFSA application. The school code is 002639.

  3. Complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE®, a single online form that allows you to apply for scholarships from over 300 colleges. The CSS PROFILE® is required in order to be reviewed for institutional need-based aid. Remember, we will only receive your form if you add Stevens Institute of Technology as a college in your PROFILE® using CSS school code number 2819.

How does the Stevens Grant renew?

To renew The Stevens Grant, you must meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards each year. The amount of The Stevens Grant may change in any given year if your family’s financial circumstances change significantly when you file the FAFSA. If your FAFSA information does not change significantly and you meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards, you will usually see The Stevens Grant remain constant, provided you meet the FAFSA filing deadline of May 15. 

Stevens financial aid is possible in large part due to the generous support of our alumni and friends. During your time at Stevens, you may learn that some or all the financial aid awards you receive are made possible through a named scholarship, established by our donor(s), to support our students. If so, you will be expected to thank the donor(s) for their support. At that time, a member of the Office of Development and Alumni Engagement team will be in touch with further information regarding this process.

  • Demonstrate significant financial need.
