Application Process

No later than March 15 OF EACH YEAR OF ELIGIBILITY, students requesting assistance for the Shelby Cash & Julia Caseyupcoming academic year must submit a completed BASAF Scholarship Application using one of the two methods outlined below.  Along with the Application, we require a copy of page 1 of the Student Aid Report (SAR) generated from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Please choose one of the following methods to submit an Application:

  • Complete the BASAF Online Scholarship Application, during which you will be required to upload a copy of page 1 of the Student Aid Report (SAR) generated from the FAFSA, or
  • Complete the BASAF Paper Scholarship Application. Download and complete the Application, then mail it via U.S. Mail to “BASAF, Scholarship Application, P.O. Box 867, Brunswick, ME 04011,” along with a copy of page 1 of the Student Aid Report (SAR) generated from the FAFSA.

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 Scholarship Application using either of the two methods noted above, along with a copy of their most recent page 1 of the Student Aid Report (SAR) generated from the FAFSA no later than March 15 of each year of eligibility.

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.

Inquires or questions regarding these matters can be sent to Dory Streett, Scholarship Committee Chair, at dorystreett@yahoo.com.
