On Tuesday, June 22, 2021, Kent State University announced a massive, first-of-its-kind new student aid program, the Flashes Go Further Scholarship Program. This means eligible students will graduate free of debt for tuition and general fees! Find out if you are eligible.

The Flashes Go Further Scholarship Program benefits Kent State students from Ohio, entering first-year students through graduating seniors, whose Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is 10,000 or under. It also incentivizes all Kent State graduates to enroll in Kent State’s graduate programs.

Kent State’s Flashes Go Further Scholarship Program covers the unmet need for all in-state entering freshmen, continuing first-year students, and current sophomores on the Kent Campus whose EFC is 10,000 or under. These recipients will receive aid to cover the full cost of tuition, general fees, and up to $1,200 a year for books, meaning these students can graduate free of debt for tuition, general fees, and books. Current full-time juniors and seniors on all Kent State campuses whose EFC is 10,000 and under will receive aid in their last semester before graduation to cover the unmet need of the full cost of in-state tuition and general fees.

The program includes a $2,000 scholarship for all Kent State students who enroll in a Kent State master’s program after earning their undergraduate degrees. It extends in-state graduate program tuition to out-of-state students when they graduate from Kent State.

The new student aid program is based on Kent State’s mission to transform lives and communities through the power of discovery, learning, and creative expression and the university’s commitment to access and completion. In fact, Kent State’s Regional Campuses already offer tuition at a discounted rate, making access affordable.
