IMPORTANT 2024 FAFSA ANNOUNCEMENT

Our requirements regarding financial need documentation were updated on February 1, 2024, after the government announced there will be delays in the transmission of final SAI data. 

The deadline for submitting the CFHZ scholarship application and documentation of the estimated SAI is 5:00 p.m. on March 1.

Students must update CFHZ with their final SAI no later than 5:00 p.m. on March 15 by emailing the single page of the FAFSA Submission Summary (FSS) with the SAI on it to stimmerman@cfhz.org

Before our March 1 application deadline, students who have filed the FAFSA and are experiencing issues not related to the government’s delay must email stimmerman@cfhz.org or mdoyle@cfhz.org for further instruction.

We anticipate it will take us longer than usual to vet financial need this year due to the governmental delays in issuing SAIs. Therefore, we also anticipate it will take us longer to notify students regarding our scholarship competition results. Our goal remains to notify students before May 1.
