The Cincinnati State Short Term Certificate Grant program provides eligible students with grants of up to $1,500 to cover tuition and fees for short-term certificate programs that do not qualify for federal financial aid.

See the list of qualifying short-term certificates below.

  • Short term certificate programs provide skills needed to get started in a new career or earn a promotion.

Who is eligible:

  • You must be an Ohio resident.
  • You must meet qualifications for financial need based on federal guidelines.
  • If you are currently enrolled in an associate's degree program that includes certificates as part of the degree, you are not eligible for the Short Term Certificate Grant.
