How do I apply for NTID scholarships?
You do not have to apply. Scholarships are automatically awarded based on your cumulative GPA and department nominations. Students who receive scholarships will be notified by mail during the summer. The scholarship also will appear on your financial aid award letter.
What types of financial aid are available?
Financial aid may include student loans, student employment, combinations of grant-in-aid, Vocational Rehabilitation and federal and state grants that are available for students in need. RIT's Financial Aid Office has more information.
What information do I have to send to my VR counselor every semester?
You need to send a copy of your financial aid award letter, class schedule, student bill, book list and grades.
Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) provides services to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing or to those who have disabilities and who need help to qualify for or to find a job. VR may assist with vocational training or college. VR services may include financial assistance, employment planning, counseling, transportation, and job placement assistance. A VR counselor, who determines eligibility for services, is assigned to each individual requesting assistance. States have various names for VR, and services vary depending on need and the state in which a student lives.
If you have questions about VR related to RIT/NTID, please contact the NTID Student Financial Services office.
