Application Process

The application is located on RamPort in the Employee Benefits section on the Employee Page. The following are the steps to the application, approval, and fund disbursement process:

  2. The Office of Human Resources will verify the employee’s eligibility and his/her dependent’s status.
  3. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will verify the dependent’s academic eligibility.
  4. Once all requirements have been verified and approved, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will disburse funds.
  5. The Employee Dependent Scholarship funds are disbursed on enrollment of a minimum 12 hours (each student is awarded a maximum of $500 in the fall and $500 in the spring). 

Renewal Process

  1. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will verify that the dependent has met the requirements for continued participation (below).
  2. The Office of Human Resources will verify the employee’s continued eligibility and his/her dependent’s status.
