Required MSF Application Support Documents
What is the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form prepared annually by prospective and current college students in the U.S. to determine eligibility for student financial aid (including Pell grants, work-study programs, and loans). The U.S. Department of Education begins accepting the applications for the upcoming academic year on October 1st.
What is a Student Aid Report (SAR) and why do I need to submit one?
The Student Aid Report (SAR) is produced by the U.S. Department of Education from information supplied on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The SAR contains the federally-calculated Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Your EFC is not the amount of money your family will have to pay for college nor is it the amount of student federal aid you will receive. Your EFC is a number used by your college/university to calculate the amount of and types of student aid you are eligible to receive.
How do I deliver my FAFSA and SAR forms to MSF?
Enclose copies of your FAFSA and SAR forms in a sealed envelope labeled “Montclair Scholarship Fund”. Deposit the sealed envelope in the MSF mailbox in the main office at the high school.
