Scholarship Opportunities


First, and most importantly, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is going to be one of your best friends when looking for financial assistance. This is a general, federal application that helps the government decide if you are eligible for their help! The FAFSA will be available on October 1st, 2021 for the 2022-2023 school year!

If the FAFSA seems overwhelming and complicated, feel free to check out Going Merry - they have a friendlier version that can be found here (it's called the "FAFSA Made Easier Form" and it's absolutely free!). This option is available starting October 12th.

*If you create a GoingMerry account and complete the FAFSA through their website, they will use your application information to find scholarships you qualify for!
