College is expensive, but help is available. Did you know filling out the FAFSA and Boise State scholarship applications will give you access to more than 700 potential scholarships? Apply now – and definitely before the February 15 priority deadline – for need-based scholarships, additional grants and work-study funding for 2018-19.
- Start by filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA is used to figure out the types and amounts of aid you might get. Financial aid is more than grants; federal aid includes work-study and low-interest loans. Take a look at this fact sheet for extra insight into what the FAFSA can do for you. Remember, some scholarships require FAFSA information, so be sure to complete this step.
- Next, fill out the Boise State scholarship application. Once you apply, you’ll be recommended scholarships for which you meet the minimum criteria. For other scholarship options, explore this handy checklist with links to multiple scholarship providers.
And here’s something important to know: even if you’re unable to qualify for a federal Pell Grant, you might qualify for Boise State need-based scholarships. Our definition of need is more generous than the criteria for Pell Grant eligibility.
Keep in mind the FAFSA is required for some scholarship applications, so don’t skip that step.
Complete both applications by February 15 to maximize your financial aid. The difference between an early applicant’s aid and a regular applicant’s aid could be thousands of dollars.
The applications are open. Apply today.
