Jordan Family Foundation’s Danbury Scholarship Fund for Student Leaders
Financial Eligibility for a Scholarship
Only students whose families have income below the cutoffs in these two columns will be eligible for the scholarship. Verification of income will happen as a second stage of the process, for students who have made it to the second round of consideration. A number of ways can be used to demonstrate the applicant’s family income: W2 forms, tax returns, or demonstration that a family is receiving other forms of federal aid, for example SSI, food stamps, free school lunch, TANF, or WIC. Families without documented income will be asked to sign a letter attesting to their current income.
Students should make sure they are financially eligible before applying for a scholarship. These are sometimes complicated conversations, and for many students it will be the first time talking with their families about their family’s finances. Kristin Kearns-Jordan is available at 917-882-0719 or email@example.com to answer questions from students or other family members about financial eligibility.
