Single Parents Scholarship- Deadline 10/1/2011

September 29, 2011

“Online Colleges.org Support A Student Scholarship for Single Parents,” – the first of its kind – was
created to financially assist single parents enrolled in a college degree
program with an online learning component.

To ensure that as many students as possible are given the best
opportunity to apply, I’m reaching out to you, in the hopes that you’ll add a
link to the scholarship to your website this week so that additional
students are aware of the opportunity and can submit their applications right
as the October 1st official open date begins.

The winner, who will be announced on December 1st, 2011, will be
awarded $10,000 towards non-tuition related living expenses for the January
2012 academic year including:
• Rent
• Childcare
• Books and School Supplies
• Utilities – Gas and Electric
• Utilities – Internet
• Groceries

Any single parent enrolled in a degree program with a significant
online component is eligible to apply. The applicant must also be receiving
some other type of financial aid.
The scholarship, with further information, can be found at: http://www.onlinecolleges.org/scholarship

If you have any questions, please let me know. I’m happy to assist in
any way I can.

Free Application for Federal Financial Aid- All Students- Deadline 6/30/09

The FAFSA is the federal application for financial aid, but it is also
used to apply for aid from other sources, such as your state or
school.

FAFSA Deadlines:

Submit 2008-2009 FAFSA on the Web Applications by midnight Central
Daylight time, June 30, 2009.

State deadlines are normally much earlier than Federal deadlines.

General Student Aid Information

Tips For Getting Aid Without Delay!

Financial aid administrators and guidance counselors from around the
country agree that the following tips speed up the application
process.

* Important: Read the instructions!
Many questions on the FAFSA are straightforward, like your
Social Security Number. But many questions are asked specifically for
purposes of student financial aid. Common words like “household,”
“investments,” and even “parent” may have special meaning. Read all
instructions carefully.
* Apply Early!
State and school deadlines will vary and tend to be early. Check
with them to find out their exact deadline dates.

Federal Student Aid will process your FAFSA if it is received on
or before the deadline. However, in order for you to actually receive
aid, your school must have correct, complete FAFSA information before
your last day of enrollment.
* Complete Your Tax Return!
We recommend that you (and your parents if you are a dependent
student) complete your tax return before filling out your FAFSA. This
will make completing the FAFSA easier. If you have not filed your tax
return yet, you can still submit your FAFSA but you must provide
correct income and tax data once you have filed.
* Save Time: File Electronically!
Complete and submit your FAFSA online. It is the fastest and
most accurate way to apply for student aid.
* Ask: Do I Need Additional Forms?
Many schools and states rely on the FAFSA as the single
application for student aid. However, it would be wise to check with
your state agency and the financial aid office at the school that you
plan to attend to find out if they require additional forms.
