Funding

There are many different kinds of funding available for college. Finding it is a different matter. Several options are available to assist with your college expenses.

FastWeb

FastWeb is a free financial aid search service. You simply answer questions to create a profile and your information is matched with items in the FastWeb database. After you register, you will continue to receive e-mail updates when new items are added.

Co-op Program

The Cooperative Education Program offers you the opportunity to work in industry while earning money to pay for your next semester of schooling. Generally, the program will only add one semester to your anticipated graduation date. However, completing the program will give you valuable experience to add to your resume once you are ready to enter the job market.

Employment

These opportunities are announced as early as November of the year before the program. Opportunities provide a stipend, many provide living arrangements, and some also provide transferable research credits.

Naval Engineering Program

The Department of Naval Reactors is inviting qualified students in their sophomore year and above in engineering, science, and mathematics programs for opportunities in highly technical positions as nuclear officers.
