4. 2013-14 FAFSA:
In order to be considered for any scholarships requiring an indication of an applicant's financial need, a 2013-14 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid) must be submitted prior to April 1, 2013. We highly suggest that all applicants submit a FAFSA, even if you do not feel you will qualify for financial aid. Without this indication of your financial need (low to high), you will automatically be taken out of consideration for any scholarships requiring this information, even if the criteria is for a student with low financial need.
