2020/2021 Financial Aid Application Deadline Extended to July 24, 2020 And Other Scholarship Updates…

The application deadline has been extended to 7/24/20 to give families extra time to complete their 2019 taxes. 2019 taxes are required.

Additional review will be given to families whose financial situation has changed due to the pandemic. Parents can add a note on the application if they’ve been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic (there is a comments section on the FACTS application).

Futures will accept unemployment documents for 2020, to verify change in income due to the pandemic. Documents must be added to the FACTS application.

General Reminders

To apply, returning families should log into their existing FACTS accounts (except for Teddy Forstmann, see below) and new families can go to our website:  futuresineducation.org, click “Scholarships” and “Apply Now”

Families must meet income eligibility requirements and be registered for 20/21 in order to be considered.

There is a non-refundable $35 application processing fee payable by credit card. Applications are available online in English and Spanish.
