Financial Aid Eligibility

Financial awards are determined by analysis of certified need by submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and the CSS/PROFILE.

As part of the qualifications for the Ouimet Scholarship, we require the student to show financial need.  Should an applicant show no financial need, but exhibit all of the other requirements, we offer an HONORARY Scholar status.  Honorary Scholars receive no financial aid, but receive all of the same benefits and participate in all events offered by The Fund.  Should the financial need change during the college years, the student would be considered for aid after the appropriate financial forms are submitted to The Fund.



The completed application will be used to assess your qualifications to be considered a Ouimet Scholar.  The interviewers, the Scholarship Committee, and designated Ouimet Fund staff will be the only persons seeing or using this information.  Interviewers are not given family financial information.
