How to handle FAFSA delays in scholarship judging?
I'm a newer admin and first time post-writer.
Our scholarships give consideration to FAFSA results, but this year there are major difficulties for students in completing the FAFSA form. How have you handled this issue? Financial need isn't among our highest priorities, so I'm considering removing the FAFSA questions all together (but some students have already applied.) Our deadlines are January 15 (international) and February 15 (domestic), so time is tight and families are stressed.
I thank this group! Happy new year!
