7 - What does “Demonstrated Financial Need” mean?

In order to be considered eligible for our scholarship, your FAFSA Expected Family Contribution (EFC), plus any other financial assistance, must be less than the Cost of Attendance (CoA) for the college/university you attend.

Here is a quick math equation to determine eligibility:

Cost of Attendance 'CoA'
Fary Scholarshipminus: Other Scholarships/Grants
Fary Scholarshipminus: Expected Family Contribution 'EFC'
= Demonstrated Financial Need

Example: If your CoA is $45,000, your Other Scholarships/Grants are $10,000, and your EFC is $15,000, then your Demonstrated Financial Need is $20,000 – that is, $45,000, minus $10,000, minus $15,000, equals $20,000. The Fary Scholarship is for $6,000 per year, so you qualify.

Instead, if your CofA is $24,000 and you subtract from your CoA both your Other Scholarships/Grants ($10,000) and your EFC ($15,000), then your Demonstrated Financial Need is less than $0.00, thus, you are not eligible to receive a Fary Memorial Scholarship.
