Scholarships & Grants

UC Hastings also awards a limited number of need-based grants. Need is determined by the College based on information provided in the FAFSA and the UC Hastings Financial Aid SupplementNeed-based grant amounts for all recipients may vary from year to year based on budgetary conditions. Need-based grant recipients must continue to show need in order to renew their grant.

UC Hastings may reduce or deny any institutional merit-based scholarships or need-based grants awarded if students have other financial aid resources, other than monies borrowed through federal and/or private student loans. Students may be eligible for institutional merit-based scholarships or need-based grants for a maximum of six semesters.

In addition to the College’s general merit-based scholarships and need-based grants, entering students are considered for privately-funded scholarships provided by generous alumni and friends of UC Hastings. Our Tony Patiño Fellowship has a separate application process detailed here.
