Evaluating Financial Need with New FAFSA


We are a small foundation and the majority of our scholarships have a financial need requirement. I was curious if (how) organizations are changing their evaluation of financial need with the upcoming changes to the FAFSA, particularly related to how the EFC/SAI will be calculated. As part of our financial need evaluation, we currently use the SAI/EFC to help identify students that are on the low end/just outside of federal/state awards. I am expecting that with the removal of the sibling discount students from households with more than 1 college student may not fall in our targeted ranges since their SAI will likely be higher. Interested in what others are considering/doing/
