The Greenwich Scholarship Association ("GSA") is an umbrella organization which awards scholarships from numerous organizations. Completion of this application automatically makes students with demonstrated financial need eligible for all scholarships GSA represents, including PTA and PTAC scholarships. DEMONSTRATED FINANCIAL NEED IS A PRE-REQUISITE FOR RECEIPT OF ANY SCHOLARSHIP FROM GSA. Furthermore, you must either be a resident of Greenwich OR attend Greenwich High School to qualify for any award.

1. Complete the GSA on-line application. It is important to complete all fields -- especially the financial ones. This WILL affect the amount you are eligible to receive. Please be mindful of correct capitalization and spacing. Your responses will generate a profile EXACTLY as entered. Scholarship funds are matched based upon these profiles. Creative grammar and spacing are not encouraged.
2. You MUST have applied to all of your college choices for financial aid to be eligible for aid through GSA. If you cannot apply for financial aid for some reason, you MUST contact us. YOU ARE INELIGIBLE FOR AID THROUGH GSA IF YOU DO NOT APPLY TO YOUR SCHOOL.
3. You MUST have completed and filed a FAFSA form. Submit the resulting Student Aid Report (SAR) to verify financial need (5 pages). You may attach it to your application or submit a hard copy by mail but it must be received by MARCH 11, 2017. * Please note that it may take up to 5 days to receive an SAR upon completion of the FAFSA filing. An SAR will not generate if you leave certain information blank -- be sure you receive confirmation that your FAFSA submission is complete.
4. You MUST attend the GSA Award Ceremony on THURSDAY, JUNE 8 at 7:00 pm in the Performing Arts Center at Greenwich High School. Attendance is MANDATORY and if you do not attend, you will not receive your award. YOU MUST BE PRESENT OR YOU WILL FORFEIT YOUR AWARD.
