Applying for Theta Foundation Scholarships? File the FAFSA!

The 2022-2023 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) became available on Oct. 1, 2021. If you haven’t yet submitted your FAFSA for the upcoming academic year, don’t delay! Every college student should complete and submit the FAFSA in order to be eligible for federal, state, and institutional financial aid.

Further, Theta Foundation’s scholarship application requires need-based applicants to submit a copy of their Student Aid Report (SAR), which is emailed to you 3-5 days after submitting your FAFSA online. If you want to be considered for need-based scholarships, it’s important that you submit your FAFSA as soon as possible so that you receive your SAR before our application deadline, not to mention to ensure you are considered for first-come, first-served financial aid opportunities!
