 COLLEGE COUNTS!

http://collegecountsalabama.com

This is a scholarship which will be potentially awarded to 1 or more seniors per each Alabama high school (if seniors will take the time to apply). Please click on this link to see if you qualify for this scholarship.

 

ANYTIME:

READ THE FOLLOWING FAFSA INFORMATION AND THINK ABOUT IT CAREFULLY: If you are not planning to attend college in the summer of 2017 then you will need to complete the FAFSA worksheet for the 2017-18 online application ONLY and use your parents' 2016 income tax return.  Do not wait for them to file to begin completing the online FAFSA application on October 1, 2016, no longer January 1, 2017.


If you are planning to attend college the summer of 2017, you will need to fill out the FAFSA information on two different applications.The 2016-17 application will require your parents' 2015 income tax return. This will be to qualify for summer funds.  BUT, you will also need to complete the 2017-18 FAFSA application for fall 2017. This is because each new "loan" year starts in the fall and ends in the summer.

NEED TO KNOW!

For future reference, as a college sophomore (or high school senior), if you are interested in a career with the National Security Agency, this is the scholarship for you. You must have an ACT score of 25, 3.0 GPA, eligible to be granted security clearance, planning to major in Computer Science or Computer/Electrical Engineering. Visit the website for further information at http://www.nsa.gov/.
