Prior to receiving your ATA funding, you must complete your Free Application for Student (FAFSA) for the academic year you are applying to the ATA Scholarship for. Otherwise, there may be delays in disbursing the award to your account.
Applicants forfeit their scholarship eligibility if they knowingly provide any false or misleading information on their ATA Scholarship application.
Application responses cannot be saved and then submitted at a later date. For example, applicants who close or refresh their browser window/tab before submitting their application will be required to complete the entire application again.
Read through the application’s introduction. It is important that you understand the general terms of the scholarship before applying.
