Applications are available on the Hebrew Free Loan Society (HFLS) website after April 1. Students must complete the scholarship application online. The application does not have to be completed in one sitting; the student will create an account so he/she can save his/her work and log in at a later time. Only one application is required for all HFLS scholarships. After submission of the application, the student will be told which scholarships he/she is eligible for. A complete application must also include the most recent Financial Aid Assessment form (available online on the HFLS website). The student's financial aid office must complete and submit this form. Please note: The financial aid office will require information from the student's FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to complete the form. Therefore, the student's FAFSA must be on file at his/her institution before the form can be completed. The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov, at high school guidance offices, and at college financial aid offices. The Financial Aid Assessment form must be faxed or mailed using the contact information provided by the student's college's financial aid office, and must be received by July 10.
