Summer Aid

If you plan to attend Hope in the summer and need financial assistance, you may be eligible for aid.

If you would like consideration for financial assistance, you need to submit the Summer Aid Request form. If you plan to study abroad, please also submit the Summer Loan Expense form. 

There are additional requirements for Federal Direct PLUS Loans and private loans. 

NOTE: Your grant and/or loan may be adjusted if you decrease your enrollment after the aid has been awarded. Summer awards are subject to making satisfactory academic progress after spring semester.


Some scholarships are available for the Japan and Vienna summer programs.

Contact either the Office of International Education or the program coordinator for further information.
