We’re now accepting applications for 2024-25 school year

January 8, 2024

We’re excited to announce that the Meeting Street Scholarship Fund is ready to accept your application!

Apply today to earn up to $40,000 to help you pay for college! In addition to completing the application form, you’ll need to upload two documents:

  1. An unofficial high school transcript
  2. Your FAFSA Submission Summary (see more below)

Scholarship Deadlines

Our first application deadline will be Friday, Jan. 19 at 11:59 p.m. We will notify all applicants who meet that deadline of their application status no later than Friday, Jan. 26.

While we encourage you to apply as soon as possible, we understand that you may not be ready to do so by our January deadline. That’s OK! We have four more application deadlines this spring, and you can see those here.

Help with FAFSA

The FAFSA website has experienced some technical issues since it launched Dec. 30, so we recommend checking the website at least once per day until you’re able to login and access the FAFSA form.

To obtain your FAFSA Submission Summary, you need to first create an FSA ID and then complete the FAFSA. We’ve created step-by-step guides on how to do both.

  • Create an FSA ID. This is the username and password that you will use to access your FAFSA form. You will need a Social Security Number (SSN). For most students, at least one parent also will need to create an FSA ID. It can take up to three days for your FSA ID to be approved. 
  • Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
    • Most students will need to invite at least one parent as a “contributor” to their FAFSA form. You will invite the same parent(s) who you asked to create an FSA ID.
    • Within three days of submitting your FAFSA form, you can log back into FAFSA to view your FAFSA Submission Summary. You will submit the Eligibility Overview section as part of your Meeting Street Scholarship Fund application.
