The mission of College Access Fairfax scholarships is to fill the gap between a student’s financial need and the amount of financial aid offered by the college. Students who are awarded full financial aid (free grants that cover tuition, room, and board) will not be awarded a CAF scholarship, because their financial need has been met.
