  • NEED (Negro Educational Emergency Drive) - Washington & Jefferson College has partnered with the NEED program and PHEAA's PATH program to provide unique funding opportunities to African-American students from specific counties in Western Pennsylvania. These counties include Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Lawrence, Washington and Westmoreland.
    NEED is a community based organization offering financial aid, internships, and counseling to help young African-Americans apply to, finance, and complete higher education. The funding from NEED helps to fill the gap that exists after federal, state, and institutional aid has been exhausted.
    The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) has a unique program that uses an allocation from the state to match private contributions to students from participating agencies. NEED is one of these agencies, so there is potential for funding from both NEED and PATH for students who meet the criteria.
    Interested students can visit NEED's website (www.needld.org) for more information or to complete an online application.
