FAFSA INFORMATION

Before applying for scholarships, you will need to complete the FAFSA form. The FAFSA will provide data necessary for your application and may make you eligible for federal or state grants as well.

Apply early to get the most out of your FAFSA - it opens October 1st.

What you will need to complete the FAFSA:

  • Social Security / Alien ID number for parents and student (if your parents do not have a social security number, you can still complete the form if the student has one)
  • Last year's income tax information and any other income such as savings accounts, stocks, bonds, etc.
  • A list of schools you're interested in attending (up to 10)
  • If you are an independent student, parent information is not required
  • If immigration status is an obstacle, the WASFA is an alternative
Helpful Worksheets & Guides

Use the FSA ID worksheet when the student or parent is making their FSA ID. Write down your username, password, and security questions in the corresponding blanks. You will need this information when logging in and for future use.

Read this step by step guide before you begin working on your FAFSA. Refer back to it as needed when you are working through the questions.

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
