Please mark out ALL social security numbers listed on submitted forms to help ensure the security of your and your parents’ identities. DO NOT submit attachments to IRS Form 1040 – this includes Forms W-2 and 8863 and Schedules A, B, C, D, and SE.

NOTIFICATION
Scholarship recipients are notified of their awards in early June. Students not selected to receive scholarships will not be notified due to the volume of applications received. You may visit the Foundation web site at www.crawfordheritage.org to review a complete list of scholarship awards.

* You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form (www.fafsa.ed.gov) to receive your Federal Student Aid Report (SAR). This form can be completed as soon as January 1st of the year you plan to attend college. You can go back to your FAFSA to check status, make corrections to a processed FAFSA and get other information should your circumstances change. Four to six weeks after submitting your FAFSA, you will receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) which summarizes the information you reported. (A sample SAR is available for your reference on our web site at www.crawfordheritage.org/docs/CompletedSARsample.pdf.) Applications missing your SAR or other supporting documents will not be considered so please plan ahead! Contact your guidance counselor for more FAFSA information.
