Scholarship Information

The Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities
CalGrants, FAFSA, Loans. All part of life for a senior in high school and the family trying to send them off to college. There has been a strong push from the private colleges in the State of California to compete for students during the current budget crisis public schools are facing from Kindergarten through university levels. See what the possibilities are and explore new options.

 

FAFSA
Study this information before December 31st of your Senior year so that you and your parents’ finances are in the optimum shape to qualify for financial aid and scholarships. The sooner you apply after the first of the year, the higher priority you have for financial aid that can be disbursed. Don’t wait until the deadline. You can update tax info once your taxes are completed.

 

Cal Grant
There are Entitlement and Competitive Cal Grants. For Competitive Cal Grants, you have to have an unweighted (no AP or honors bumps) GPA of 2.0, from your sophomore and junior years, including summer school, if you are from a disadvantaged or low-income family. Students from middle-income families need to have an unweighted GPA of 3.0. See website or career counselor

 

 

 

University of California Blue and Gold Plan: Tuition and fees will be waived if your total family income is less than $80,000.  You must file a FAFSA/CA Dream Act application and Cal Grant GPA verification form by March 2nd.  Automatic consideration, no additional application necessary.  http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/paying-for-uc/glossary/blue-and-gold/index.html
