For many students, getting into college is just the beginning. The next hurdle is figuring out how to pay for it, which is where financial need scholarships come in. Many organizations only give out funds to students whose family household income falls below a certain amount. These can give financially-disadvantaged students a helping hand.
These scholarship applications may ask for a copy of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the official form that colleges use to determine financial aid eligibility. They may also request to see a copy of your parent’s most recent tax return or pay stub.
