Financial Aid

We aim to support all students with financial need.  We offer loans, grants, scholarships, awards, tuition waivers, and work-study positions that can help offset the cost of tuition. 

Most aid is need-based and requires filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on the Financial Aid Website, where you can also find information on student loans and other types of aid.

Evergreen’s financial aid priority deadline is July 1, meaning your official FAFSA must be received AND processed by the Federal Processor no later than July 1. Your FAFSA cannot be rejected by the Processor for any reason to be considered official, and must include Evergreen’s school code 008155

While FAFSA forms can be filled out after July 1, applicants may not qualify for as much aid as on-time filers. 

MiT sponsored Scholarships, Awards, Work-study

  • You must complete the FAFSA to be considered for any need-based aid.  Not all MiT aid is need-based. 

  • Complete the MiT Financial Assistance Application form to be considered for any of the following types of aid.

  • Each award has its own requirements for specific materials, such as a letter of intent, resume, or letters of recommendation. Click on the title of each award for complete details about that award's criteria and documentation to submit.
