We are passing along this message about the Wisconsin Covenant from our friends at the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. High school seniors who signed the Covenant can receive up to $10,000 in grants for postsecondary education if they act quickly and complete the following two steps by April 1:
- Required forms. Complete, sign and return them to the Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB).
- Record of Service
- 2012 Senior Confirmation Form
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
For what it’s worth, we highly recommend that students file these forms well before April 1, in order to be eligible to receive other state funds, like the Wisconsin Tuition Grant (for those attending Wisconsin’s private colleges) or the Wisconsin Higher Education Grant (for those attending Wisconsin’s public colleges).
