APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS

All SPSEF scholarships, as well as colleges/universities, require your current Free Application for Federal Student Aid – Expected Family Contribution (FAFSA-EFC) when applying for financial aid. To apply for a scholarship, follow these steps:

1. Before you apply for any of the Foundation’s Scholarships you MUST complete the FAFSA. To access the FAFSA website: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Once you have completed the FAFSA, you will receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number listed in the top right hand corner. You will need your EFC number to complete the Foundation Scholarship Application.

2. To see if you are eligible to apply for a particular scholarship, click on each of the scholarship names listed above to read the eligibility, criteria, and guidelines for applying.

3. To apply for a specific scholarship click on the blue APPLY button next to the scholarship name. Students may apply for multiple scholarships.

4. Once you have been redirected to the scholarship application page you will be prompted to create an account and then begin filling out the application. If you can’t finish the entire application in one session, don’t worry because you will be able to save your work and return at a later time to complete or update your application.
