Financial Aid Awareness

Did you know last week was Financial Aid awareness week at Bellarmine?

The fantastic staff of the Financial Aid Office has been doing their best to spread the word about the importance of filing the FAFSA as soon as possible. Last week they gave away snacks, t-shirts, and gift cards to students.

In addition, they advertised opportunities like this one: a contest sponsored by 55,000 Degrees that will award $1,000 in college scholarship money to one lucky Louisville area winner who fills out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and then uses social media to spread the word. If your family lives in the Louisville area, you are strongly encouraged to check out the details and participate. The deadline is January 31!

  1. It is actually with a heavy heart that we are not filling out a FAFSA application… My special and wonderful daughter, Marissa, is a senior… and this is her last semester. Thank all of you for taking such good care of her! We love BU!! However…we are looking into MBA’s!!! YAY!

  2. Do returning students on scholarship but no aid have to fill out the form?
