Financial Need Information
Do you have a FAFSA Student Aid Report with a calculated EFC (Expected Family Contribution)?
Yes, but I believe my EFC is incorrect
No, I am ineligible to complete the FAFSA
Your EFC is provided on your FAFSA Student Aid Report, generally at the top inside of a box next to your FAFSA filing date.
What is your Expected Family Contribution (EFC)?
Please explain how or why you feel your FAFSA EFC is incorrect and what steps you have taken to appeal this decision with FAFSA or your institution.
Please explain your ineligibility to complete FAFSA. If you have another determination letter from your state or university please let us know about it here.
Have you already received an offer of full tuition remittance from your university or college?
This only covers university scholarships that cover the full cost of attendance (often called a “Full Ride”). Work-study or loan offers are not considered full tuition remittance for this question.
Have you already received an "full ride" scholarship from another source that is not your university?
Many schools limit the amount of financial aid that can be distributed to a student after tuition needs are met and refund excess aid back to the nonprofit. If you select “yes” and are chosen as a finalist, we will work with you to investigate whether your university will accept our additional scholarship.
The Balkhi Foundation Higher Education Scholarship is intended to help talented students who would otherwise not be able to afford further education. By clicking the Submit button below, you agree that you are in need of financial aid to attend college and that all information you have provided is truthful to the best of your knowledge. By submitting this application, you agree to allow the Balkhi Foundation to contact your two recommending instructors listed in this application for a recommendation. You understand that these recommendations are confidential and will not be released to student applicants.
