    How to win New Hampshire scholarships

    New Hampshire is a small New England state with a huge number of attributes! In order to win New Hampshire scholarships, you should consider highlighting these unique features in your scholarship application while simultaneously connecting to your own special interests and passions.

    For example, perhaps you enjoy skiing on Loon Mountain, which has led you to be interested in studying environmental science. Or maybe hiking in the beautiful fall weather has led you down a path towards becoming a park ranger. Whatever your personal interests, connect it back to your life as a New Hampshirite (or hopeful future New Hampshirite!) This will help you stand out in the scholarship application pool as well as show how meaningful New Hampshire is in your higher education journey!

    Consider in-state tuition and tuition reciprocity 

    In-state tuition allows residents of a state to receive cheaper tuition for a college or university in their state. Additionally, many universities and colleges reserve scholarships and financial aid for in-state students, which helps reduce the cost of attending college for those who live there.

    Here are a few well-known New Hampshire universities and their in-state vs out-of-state tuition costs:

    University of New Hampshire

    • In-state tuition: $15,520

    Plymouth State University

    • In-state tuition: $14,558
    • Out-of-state tuition: $25,498

    How do you get in-state tuition? 

    Being a New Hampshire resident can significantly reduce the cost of tuition for New Hampshire colleges and universities. In order to become a New Hampshire resident for tuition purposes, you will need to physically reside in New Hampshire for no less than 12 continuous months prior to the term for which in-state status is desired. Additionally, you must be residing in New Hampshire for some purpose other than attending the University, such as obtaining employment in New Hampshire. In addition, you will need to prove that you want to remain in the state of New Hampshire by obtaining physical proof, such as a New Hampshire driver’s license or registering your vehicle in New Hampshire. It is important to note that each New Hampshire university of college may have different requirements for residency so double check with your intended institution on their rules!

This agreement provides tuition reciprocity savings to residents in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, and of course, New Hampshire. Eligibility for this program varies by state and institution, so be sure to double check with your intended institution.
