If the student is new to the BAF scholarship program, they will need to create an account. The next step for all applicants is to take the eligibility quiz. IGNORE the access code section. This brief questionnaire will direct each applicant to those scholarships for which they should make application.

Items needed for the application include:

  • A downloaded copy of their Student Aid Report (received after completing their FAFSA) with their Estimated Family Contribution(EFC) amount
  • A copy of their most recent grade transcript (it should include your fall 2018 semester)

Applicants may complete the application in multiple settings--just remember to save before exiting the program. Individuals must click on the "SUBMIT" tab when finished. Failure to do so will result in the application remaining in "Draft" format and will not be reviewed for possible rewards.
