This scholarship is need-based. If your 2020 income is over $36,000, you’ll need to provide documentation and a thorough explanation demonstrating your family’s financial need and extreme extenuating financial circumstances.
Examples of financial need include multiple sibling applicants in college, significant medical expenses that are abnormal to a normal tax year and death of an income-providing parent in 2020.
Examples of extenuating circumstances that cannot be considered include: “I am paying for college on my own” or “I am attending an expensive college.”
