Scholarship Opportunity!

One of the most common questions we get in Financial Aid is, where can I find outside scholarships?

So glad you asked!

The Pennsylvania Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (PASFAA) is offering seven $1,000 scholarships to Pennsylvania residents this year. If you’re a Dickinson student from PA, and you’re taking at least 3 classes a semester, you might qualify for this scholarship! (See other eligibility requirements here.)

Applications are due May 1st, 2018. Click here to apply.

Scholarship winners will be notified this summer.

 

Good luck!

Hey there, Dickinsonians!

 

If you’ve been here for more than a year, and you receive financial aid, you know we collect a new application every spring. Most domestic students will file a FAFSA, complete an online application through the Gateway, and submit other requested documents.

We’re so excited to offer you a new, secure way to send us your financial aid documents! Now you can upload files (.pdf, .doc, and .docx) through the Dickinson website.

Financial Aid Tip #1

It might feel like it’s too early to think about NEXT school year – you’re just getting settled into THIS year, after all! But for the second year, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is open on October 1st.

Because the FAFSA now uses income information from two years ago, most people will be able to finish their FAFSA this fall. Depending on your home state, there could be a benefit to filing early.

Dickinson’s deadline is May 1st, but why not get it out of the way?

 

 

Pro Tip: Most students will be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to make the FAFSA a breeze.
