Scholarship Information

 

The CFA Scholarship Policy considers applications from individuals with cystic fibrosis for financial assistance with the expenses of post-secondary education.

  • Eligibility is limited to applicants with cystic fibrosis who are members of CFA.
  • All applications will be presented to the Board with a recommendation from the Executive Director.
  • Receipt of an application does not imply any affirmative obligation to an award of financial assistance.
  • Costs considered include tuition, books, room, board, and fees.
  • All applicants must first complete the FAFSA application and must apply to the North Dakota Department of Vocational Rehabilitation for potential third-party assistance and show evidence of eligibility or non-eligibility.
  • If deemed to be eligible for other types of non-refundable financial aid (federal, state, private), this aid must be applied to costs before CFA aid will be considered. Responses from all sources must be submitted to CFA as part of the application process.
  • The Board will determine whether and to what extent to make a grant based upon all funds available from other sources, the probability of successful completion by the student, the overall financial position of the Association, the number of other applicants, and any other considerations deemed relevant by the Board (other than race, religion, gender, national origin or political affiliation).

Receipt of a scholarship by an applicant does not insure or guarantee that future grants will be awarded.
