A. To receiving funding, students must first acknowledge their award on our website. 

Next, students must enroll in a degree program leading to a recognized associate degree, baccalaureate degree, or pre-baccalaureate certificate at an eligible institution. In addition, students must enroll in the minimum amount of credits required; 12 credits at a university or state college; 9 credits at a community college. 

Once these steps have been completed, the Millennium Scholarship is applied directly into the student’s account by the institution. Scholarship funds are typically disbursed about a week before classes begin, depending on the institution’s payment schedule.  

Contact the financial aid office at your institution to find out the disbursement date.
