The Utah State Board of Regents administers two scholarship programs:  The New Century Scholarship and Regents’ Scholarship.  For specific information and award amounts for each of the scholarships, please refer to the following website: http://higheredutah.org/preparepay/

These scholarships may continue to be refined and altered on an annual basis as result of legislation. Therefore, it is important that you use their website (http://higheredutah.org/preparepay/) as your resource for the most up-to-date information.

The New Century Scholarship encourages students to accelerate their education by earning an Associate’s degree in high school from an institution within the Utah System of Higher Education. The scholarship may be used at a 4-year public college or university within the Utah System of Higher Education, as well as at Brigham Young University-Provo and Westminster College.  The following pdf is a great resource for those interested in the New Century Scholarship.

The Regents’ Scholarship encourages Utah high school students to prepare for college academically and financially by taking a core course of study and saving for college. The scholarship may be used at any public college or university in the Utah System of Higher Education, as well as at Brigham Young University-Provo, LDS Business College, and Westminster College.  The following pdf is a great resource for those interested in the Regents’ Scholarship.

The awards amounts are determined on an annual basis and are subject to legislative funding and the total number of qualified participants. Therefore, award amounts may be reduced, may vary from year to year, and are dependent on when the recipient is enrolled in college. Funding levels beyond Spring of 2013 are
unknown and the award amounts will be determined in April of each year. However, the maximum New Century award and the Regents’ Scholarship Exemplary Academic Achievement award amount that a student may receive is $1250 per semester

PAYING FOR COLLEGE

HOW TO GET SCHOLARSHIPS

  • Be prepared to do the footwork. Be willing to work hard to find scholarships and get better results.
  • Make sure you have taken the ACT at least twice. This can be done in October of your senior year.
  • Make a resume highlighting all your strengths.
  • Narrow your choices to potential colleges/universities. You may attend scholarship info seminars and get a good understanding of how to apply for the academic scholarships at each school. This can be researched through college/ university websites.
  • Check for scholarships with Mr. Jenkins, on our school Facebook page, and on bulletin boards in the school.
  • Avoid scholarships scams. Never pay money for on-line scholarship services and never give out personal information to unknown web sites. There are free searches available. Check with Utahfutures, fast web, and other sites.
  • Get involved in school and community activities and give service. This looks good on a resume.
  • Get letters of recommendation well in advance of scholarship deadlines.
  • Check with collegescholarships.com for tips on how to win scholarships.

WHAT IS FINANCIAL AID? INTRO TO GRANTS AND LOANS

  • Grants: money awarded by the government to an undergraduate student (a college freshman-senior) based on financial need.
  • Grants DO NOT need to be repaid.
  • You must reapply for grants every year.
  • Federal Perkins and Stafford Loans: these are educational loans guaranteed by the government at a very low interest rate. This means that you and your family do not need to use personal credit to qualify. These loans are based on financial need, but most students qualify.
  • Loans must be repaid upon college graduation or less than full-time attendance.
  • You must reapply for loans every year.
  • Subsidized Loans: the government pays the interest on your loan while you are in college. The interest you must pay off will not begin to accumulate until you graduate or are no longer attending college full time. At this time the borrower is responsible for all interest as well as loan amount.
  • Unsubsidized Loans: interest begins to accumulate as soon as loan is finalized; the borrower is responsible for all interest as well as loan amount.
  • Loans must begin being repaid after graduation from college or if a student or if a student drops below full-time enrollment. Repayment occurs through scheduled monthly payments at this time.
  • Amounts can vary anywhere up to $8,500 for subsidized and up to $20,000 for unsubsidized loans. These amounts are available each year.
  • REMEMBER… you are responsible for paying off all loans and their interest whether they are subsidized or unsubsidized.
  • There are many variables involved in determining financial need, so apply even if you don’t think you can qualify; you have nothing to loose.
  • You can apply for grants and government loans through FAFSA (Tree Application for Federal Student Aid) which can be done on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

 

WHAT IF I AM OFFERED WORK STUDY?

 

  • Work Study allows you to apply for on-campus and off-campus jobs for which only Work Study approved students can apply.
  • Employers receive government compensation for hiring Work-Study approved students, so this will give you an advantage in finding a job while attending College or the University.
  • Work Study is a government program and can only be granted by applying for financial aid through www.fafsa.ed.gov.
  • You must apply for Work Study every school year.

 

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID?

 

STEP 1:  Get free information and help from your school counselor, the financial aid office at the college or career school you plan to attend, or from the US Dept. of Education.

STEP 2: Get a PIN, personal identification number. This is required to sign your on-line FAFSA application. To do this, go to www.pin.ed.gov.

STEP 3: Collect documents needed to apply: income tax returns (parents) and w-2 forms (parents and yours). A complete list of required materials is at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

STEP 4: Complete a FAFSA between January and June of your senior year in high school. These are state and federal deadline dates, so don’t be late!

STEP 5: FSA will send you a Student Aid Report (SAR) within 4 weeks from the time you completed your on-line application. Review your SAR, and if necessary, make changes or corrections and submit your SAR for reprocessing. Your complete, corrected SAR will contain your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) – the number used to determine your federal student aid eligibility.

STEP 6: If you are selected for verification, your college/university’s financial aid office will ask you to submit tax returns and other documents, as appropriate. Be sure to meet the college/university’s deadlines, or you will not receive federal student aid.

STEP 7: Whether you are selected for verification or not, make sure the financial aid office at the college/university has all the information needed to determine your eligibility.

STEP 8: All students: contact the financial aid office if you have any questions about the aid being offered. First-time applicants: review award letters from schools to compare amounts and types of aid being offered. Decide which school to attend based on combination of (a) how well the school suits your needs and (b) its affordability after all aid is take into account.

WHO GETS FEDERAL STUDENT AID?

BASIC ELEIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • Demonstrate financial need (determined by FAFSA info you will provide).
  • Be a U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen with a valid social security number.
  • Be working toward a degree or certificate in an eligible program.
  • Have a high school diploma or GED Certificate.
  • Registered with the Selective Service, if you are a male between the ages of 18-25.
  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress once in college.
