How to Apply for Scholarships and Financial Aid

Step 2: Apply for a scholarship or grant. Choose from the list below. In most cases, all that is required to receive a merit-based award is to apply and be offered admission to Hiram College. 

Step 3: Wait for the results. Students who successfully completed their FAFSA by Feb. 15 should expect to receive a financial package sometime in early March.
