What is a Statement of Financial Need?

Feel free to include a budget of your expenses, but also be sure to explain your financial situation. Simply including a spreadsheet of numbers is typically not sufficient for serious consideration.

3. Rolling Scholarship Opportunities
Gather all additional application materials the scholarship requires. A list of required documentation is in the “must submit” section of each scholarship listing.
Assemble your application packets. If you want a certain essay or a particular letter of recommendation to be matched with a specific scholarship, please complete this task yourself so that your intentions are clear. Put your application packets together with paperclips rather than staples. All documents must be scanned for record-keeping purposes, and documents cannot be scanned if they are stapled.
4. Submit your completed applications via U.S. Postal Service mail, intercampus mail or in-person in our office or at a collection day. Please review our campus mail guide prior to sending applications through intercampus mail.
