Do You Need Additional Support to Transition to NHTI?

The Transition Program is a federally funded program that provides assistance and support to matriculated NHTI students in transition – such as single pregnant women, single parents, displaced homemakers, individuals with documented disabilities, and individuals with limited English proficiency. It helped hundreds of women and men to obtain degrees and to launch careers.

Financial assistance is available to pay for tuition and/or books. You need to apply each semester to remain in program, maintain at least a 2.0 GPA, and be in an approved program major. This scholarship is funded by the U.S. Department of Education as part of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 as awarded by the N.H. Department of Education.

To qualify, you must be enrolled in a career or technical degree, diploma, professional certificate, or certificate program; only core courses within those programs will be eligible for consideration.  General Studies major does not qualify for this program. Please check with your advisor to see if you qualify.

  • You must be either a single pregnant woman, a single parent, a displaced homemaker, have a documented disability or be of limited English proficiency.
  • You must be a matriculated student in a career or technical degree, professional certificate, or certificate program.
