There are two types of financial aid. The first is need-based aid, which is given to a student whose family is unable to pay the entire tuition based on need. This is difficult for schools to calculate because of the paperwork involved. The second are scholarships which students earn because they are meritorious in one way or another. Scholarships are given for academic or testing excellence, athletic or artistic ability, or commitment to service. In addition, because many schools are anxious to have Vietnamese students, they will sometimes show preference to students from Vietnam when giving aid. Scholarships are limited so that is why it is imperative that you make the best impression on the interviewer.
Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) was founded in 1911 and has grown to become the second largest university in the state of Tennessee. The beautiful campus is located on 500 acres of flat greenway, almost like a park. Since its founding, it has strived to foster a student-centered environment that is conducive to lifelong learning, personal development, and success. Small classes with student-focused professors ensure this commitment to learning and success.
