Need money for college?

  • How do I get a Scholarship

     

    The FAFSA is FREE to complete

    The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is where students get the majority of their grants, loans and work study funding to go to most colleges, universities, and technical schools.

    In 2016-2017, BCPS seniors received over $16,000,000 in Pell Grants (free money!) by completing the FAFSA.  Still, over 45% of seniors didn't submit their FAFSA and left at least another $5.5M in grants on the table.    

    Many sources of funding are on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply as soon as possible.  

    Everybody is strongly encouraged to submit a FAFSA, regardless of their income.  You may pick and choose which types and the amount of financial aid you receive.  So, it doesn't hurt to ask for a financial aid package!
