Scholarship Application: The Process
FULCRUM SCHOLARSHIPS for 2019-20. APPLY NOW!
The window for 2019-20 Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Grant Program (TAP) applications officially opened on October 1st, 2018. All applications must be complete and submitted by Friday, December 14th (with ALL documents submitted/uploaded by that date). Please do not delay this process, though, as issues can arise with your application so it is good to give yourself enough time to locate documents or address problems with the application so that we can assist. We go on Christmas vacation and will be unable to help with problems beginning on Dec. 20th.
After completing the application, Fulcrum will need approximately 2 weeks to complete verification of the application. Their ABSOLUTE deadline is Jan. 4th with no exceptions. Here is the link to apply: https://online.factsmgt.com/aid
VERY IMPORTANT: Any family seeking ANY financial assistance for tuition from Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy MUST first apply through the Fulcrum Grant Application before they will be granted ANY financial assistance through the school.
If you would like to use a school computer to complete the online application, you are welcome to come in the office anytime between 8:30 am- 2 pm. To speed up the process, please have the following documents/information with you:
- A copy of last year's Tax Returns
- Amount of your monthly rent, utilities, insurance, car payments, debt
- Amount available in savings, other income, etc
- Miscellaneous expenses such as vacations
- Make sure to list all expenses, as this helps to qualify you.
As a reminder, submitting the application online is just the FIRST STEP. All applicants must also provide supporting documentation, like tax forms and W-2’s, which have to be uploaded. Applications can only be verified and processed once all necessary documentation is submitted. It takes FACTS about 14 business day to process applications once paperwork is received, so the sooner it’s submitted, the better. The school deadline for applications is Dec. 14th...No Exceptions! All parts of the application must be completed and all documents uploaded at this time.
Oct 1 - Dec. 14: Families apply for aid online
Dec. 15 - Jan. 4: Fulcrum will verify applications
Feb. 19, 2019: Preliminary determination is made and schools are notified

Reminder: Any family who applies for the Fulcrum TAP grant (regardless of whether an award is given) will be able to request a negotiated contract for next year. Contract meetings for families to re-register for the 2019-20 school year will be held Feb. 20 - 22, 2019.
Each family will pay a $29 fee to FACTS to apply for Fulcrum tuition assistance. The fee is no longer reimbursed by Fulcrum.
No tuition contract meetings or financial aid will be given out through the school WITHOUT applying FIRST through Fulcrum.
