APPLICATIONS DUE DECEMBER 5, 2016
LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION: JANUARY 15, 2017
- Application for scholarships at student’s “preferred” universities and application to other scholarship providers must be completed before submitting your SSF scholarship application by December 5, 2016.
- Submission of FASFA forms for 2017-18 before submitting your SSF scholarship application December 1, 2016.
To encourage students in applying for college scholarships at both their preferred institutions and with outside providers, new deadlines now exist.
We have found that many students who were eligible for college scholarships were unaware of the early deadlines for College Admission and Scholarship Applications.
FASFA applications are open October 1, 2016 for school year 2017-18 and now use 2015 Tax Information along with new IRS links to easily transfer tax required information directly into the FASFA Form.
Early application to Federal and State programs can increase awarded aid by up to $2,000. Some funds are limited and awards are based upon application date as well as financial need.
