Finish Line Grant

Is something keeping you from completing your Harper College degree or certificate? Maybe you experienced a family emergency or a problem with your car or housing. Perhaps reliable childcare has been keeping you from classes. Don’t let those things keep you from finishing what you started.

Apply for a Finish Line Grant.

Finish Line Grants of up to $1,000 are being awarded now. These grant funds do not need to be paid back and will be applied directly to your Harper College account.

No strings attached, only your commitment to finish what you started. Complete your degree and soar!

Any Harper student nearing completion of their program can apply. Nearing completion means a student is at least 75% of the way through their program. To view your program completion, login to your MyHarper portal and check the "My Progress" section.

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Illinois Alternative Application for financial aid is also recommended.

Documentation to support your situation is required. For more information, email
