No later than March 15 of each year of eligibility, students requesting assistance for the upcoming academic year must submit a completed BASAF Scholarship Application along with a copy of their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to the Guidance Office of either Brunswick High School or Mt. Ararat High School, based on their town of residence. All qualifying applications are weighed solely on the basis of financial need, and it is the intent of the BASAF to offer financial aid to as many eligible students annually as available funds permit.
BASAF limits awards to no more than two post-secondary academic years per recipient. In order for award recipients to receive a second award, the student must request assistance by submitting another completed BASAF Scholarship Application along with a copy of their most recent FAFSA to the applicable Guidance Office no later than March 15.
There is no extension available beyond the March 15 deadline. However, if March 15 falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a day when school is not in session at the location where the form must be submitted, the application will be considered to be timely submitted on the next succeeding day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or a day when school is not in session. For applications submitted via U.S. Mail, the postmark date shall determine the date of submission.
