Scholarship Cycle Deadlines
Deadline extended to April 1, 2023
Important notes about our application process:
Our application process is entirely online; any materials submitted via mail, email, or outside of the grant cycle will not be accepted. If you have any questions please contact our Director of Programs, Analise Brown, at email@example.com.
As of 2021, the SFF uses the FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) to demonstrate financial need for college applicants. For high school applicants and applicants who do not fill out FAFSA, alternative financial documentation is required.
It is critical that the account created on our application portal (SmarterSelect) is made by the student, using the student's name. Also, please ensure that the student applicant is completing their application and not a parent/guardian.
Scholarship Awardee Spotlight
This [scholarship] allows me to mainly focus on school and receive the best education and grades possible.
Being a recipient of this scholarship year after year acted as a recognition of my hard-work and kept me motivated. It also meant having fewer loans to pay back after graduation.
Having been a recipient of the Saab Scholarship for 5 years has truly been a blessing and I am most appreciative for the assistance as well as the support and faith in me to continue to strive to be better each year.

[A SFF scholarship] means a lot to me. I’m focusing on my academic progress right now and financial support helps to buy books and all the accessories for my classes.
