2012-2013 Scholarships and Awards
It’s not too late to apply for a 2012-2013 AFSA Financial

accepted through Feb. 6. Financial aid scholarships range from
$1,500 to $4,000. To be eligible, students must be income tax
dependents of Foreign Service employees; take a minimum of
12 credits per semester; maintain a cumulative grade point av-
erage of 2.0 or greater; attend an accredited two- or four-year

ployees are not eligible for either program.
