Financial Aid Services for Trade Schools in Pennsylvania and Ohio

Education is important for those who wish to elevate themselves to a better life. New Castle School of Trades believes that the opportunity to gain a great education should not only be a privilege, but a commonly realized right for all people.

Lack of financial resources should not be the determining factor in whether someone has the means to better themselves. NCST feels compelled to assist those students who, without financial aid, would be unable to attend New Castle School of Trades.

Therefore, both New Castle School of Trades campuses offers many different options to help individuals attain the education they wish to experience. The following programs are available to those who qualify.

I would recommend New Castle School of Trades to anyone who wants to further their education or learn a trade. Plus, they will work with you if you are unemployed or have a low income with their financial aid.
