Two tips to successfully complete the new FAFSA

January 3, 2024

All prospective or current Meeting Street Scholarship Fund recipients need to fill out the new FAFSA, which launched Dec. 31.

We strongly encourage students to complete the two steps below as soon as possible.

  1. Create a FSA IDFor most students, at least one parent will also need to create an FSA ID.
  2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA): Most students will need to invite at least one parent as a “contributor” to their FAFSA form. Students will invite the same parent(s) who they asked to create an FSA ID. Within three days of submitting their FAFSA form, students can log back into their FAFSA form to view their FAFSA Submission Summary. The Meeting Street Scholarship Fund application requires students to submit the Eligibility Overview section.

Again, students must successfully submit a FAFSA form and retrieve their FAFSA Submission Summary to apply for the Meeting Street Scholarship.

We are aware that the FAFSA website has experienced some technical issues in the past few days, so we recommend students check the website at least once per day until they are able to login and access the FAFSA form.

The Meeting Street Scholarship Fund will begin accepting applications for the 2024-25 school year Jan. 8.
