SCHOLARSHIPS

TEXAS TECH  Current Newsletter including
ALUMNI ASSOCIATION SCHOLARSHIPS...
Here is the link to the current Texas Tech (February/March) newsletter with access to the application for 26 general alumni association scholarships and also to look at the other 300 alumni association scholarships available.  Also has links to upcoming events for admitted students who will attend Texas Tech. 
AMARILLO AREA FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS

Amarillo Area Foundation’s online application is open and can be accessed at aaf.spectrumportal.net where students will need to register first so that they can then login and find the 2018 scholarship application.  Students should use a personal email address, not their school email address, as we do all correspondence via email and school emails eventually get turned off.  Here are some important things I want to point out (these are also noted on the application provided all instructions are read throughout the application).

Application deadline is Friday, February 9th at 12 pm (noon)

1. All academic data (such as GPA, class rank, class size) MUST match what is on students 7-SEMESTER TRANSCRIPT (must include Fall 2017 grades).  If they enter different data than what is on their transcript, their application(s) will be declined.

2. Please make sure students know what GPA scale your school uses as they must enter that on the application.

3. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept the FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) and this is a huge step backwards for us.  As you might know, if a student imports financial information for themselves and their parent(s) directly from the IRS it does not show the financial information that was imported and therefore we are unable to verify adjusted gross income(s).  For this reason, we will have to go back to requesting a copy of their parents IRS Form 1040 instead.  However, if a student does not import financial information directly from the IRS, then we can accept their SAR provided their parent’s adjusted gross income (line 85) and the students adjusted gross income, if applicable, (line 36) show the dollar amounts.

 

The Spectrum Portal Scholarship Instructions sheet is available for access at the top of the pdf's at the bottom of this page.  If you have any questions or problems, you can send an email to scholarships@aaf-hf.org or you can let Mrs. Piper know.
