OSSE’s Postsecondary and Career Education division manages financial assistance programs for District residents who are enrolling in college. Financial assistance like scholarships and grants help students enroll in college and increases chances of success for students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.
We work with students, families, and our community to minimize college costs for students by ensuring they receive financial support that allows them to complete a postsecondary program of study on time and with less debt.
