I would like to bring to everyone’s attention that Wednesday, Feb. 1st 2012 is the Evergreen scholarship deadline for the 2012-2013 academic year. In order to be considered for scholarships here, you need to head over to the Financial Aid webpage section dedicated to “scholarships” and read through the list if you haven’t already. There are a wide variety of awards available for students, both new and old, so look carefully which ones you are eligible for. Once you find the ones you are applying for, make sure that you have all of your materials (letters of rec, letter or essay why you should get the scholarship, or whatever else they might ask for) and turn it in to the admissions office.
Not only that, but the FAFSA is also needed for many of the scholarships. Go to fafsa.ed.gov to fill this out and find out if you are eligible for federal aid. This evaluation also helps Evergreen assess your EFC (or, estimated family contribution). It helps, at least for someone who is a dependent like me, to either do this with your parents or with them on the phone.
I would also like to draw attention to how Evergreen is able to fund scholarships for students; the Evergreen Foundation’s Annual Fund is a major player when it comes to scholarships here at the school. With the help of parents, alumni, and friends of the college, the Foundation’s Annual Fund is able to assist many students who would normally not be able to attend school in the first place. Even donations as small as 5 dollars goes a long way to helping students fund their education.
Wow-that sounded really official! I actually used to work for the Foundation at one of my previous jobs here, and I called many parents and alumni over the phone, so this is actually a cause I truly support here on campus. Also, the “phonathon” is a great place to work and eagerly accepts work-study award recipients as employees.
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful week! Wow, it is almost February! Ciao.
