    • The FAFSA opens on 10/1.  We recommend that all families complete it as soon as possible to be considered for any need-based financial aid.  Many colleges and universities also require completion of the FAFSA prior to awarding any merit scholarships.  Follow the link to the right to create your FAFSA ID and complete the FAFSA .  Some colleges also require completion of the CSS Profile.  Click the link to the right to learn more about this additional form required by some colleges.
     
    • Please check the college tab in Naviance for lists of scholarships that East has received.  The list is at the bottom of the "College" tab, under scholarship list and scholarship match.   Also, there are helpful scholarship links to the right on this page.
