Scholarships are available to anyone in the Voyagers community. Awards will be based upon financial need and availability of scholarship funds, and will be determined by the Scholarship Committee. A full or partial scholarship will only apply to one Coop Day Fee. Scholarships do not cover any other fees. Scholarship recipients are eligible to register for one Coop Day a term. Any requests to register for an additional Coop Day may be considered by the committee in exceptional circumstances and would only be approved for a single term at a time.
In evaluating financial need and determining the size of any award, the Scholarship Committee will use Massachusetts income data published online at http://www.MassResources.org. The eligibility threshold for Voyagers Scholarships will be set at 75% of the State Median Income by Family Size. Threshold values for 2014-2015 are detailed in the following table (figures rounded to nearest dollar).
