    Applications for several Delaware scholarships, grants and professional incentive loans are now open for those pursuing postsecondary education during the 2017-2018 school year. Delaware residents interested in applying for these opportunities should visit http://delawaregoestocollege.org/. Each year, the Delaware Department of Education awards millions in college scholarships, grants and aid to students across the state. In 2016, more than $3.14 million was given to students in need based and merit scholarships and incentive loans, including the B. Bradford Barnes, Charles L. Hebner, and Herman M. Holloway, Sr. memorial scholarships. These full scholarship offers pay tuition, fees, room and board, and books for students enrolled full-time in 12 or more credit hours each semester.
