Carmel Education Foundation (CEF) encourages families and students to begin planning for college well before the student's senior year. We have provided some links to websites that can help you explore how to fund college for your student.
The U.S. Department of Education's website has lots of resources, including a financial aid and scholarship wizard.
Use this on-line calculator to determine the true cost of attending Indiana colleges once financial aid is taken into account. You will need your family tax form data and other information to complete the calculator. This 15-minute process provides side-by-side comparisons of Indiana college and universities.
Please use either Chrome or Firefox to complete the CEF Scholarship application.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Deadline for FAFSA application for Indiana students is April 2020.
Locate the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) on the FAFSA confirmation page.
If you are a student-athlete, please review the NCAA information (see link below). In some instances, student-athletes may not be able to accept a CEF athletic scholarship under NCAA rules.
To upload documents into the CEF Scholarship Application, you must first convert your Word document to a .pdf (Adobe's Portable Document Format). If you do not have Adobe's software installed on your computer, allowing you to create a .pdf directly, you can use one of several free on-line .pdf converters. A link to one of these sites is listed below. You can also request your transcript from Mrs. Pacalo in the CHS counseling Office in .pdf format. Mrs. Pacalo will e-mail a .pdf of your transcript to you, and you can then upload this document where indicated in the on-line application form.
