NHSI Financial Aid Application

The National High School Institute utilizes the FACTS Financial Aid Application. Awards are made by the Financial Aid Committee on the basis of financial need. If you wish to apply for a scholarship or financial assistance, you should notate so in the Financial Aid section of the Admissions Application. Then, you will receive an email with next steps regarding the FACTS Financial Aid Application. Please note, FACTS requires a $30 application fee as well as copies of your family’s 2015 tax return and 2016 W2’s.

Full tuition coverage is rare. On average Financial Aid applicants can expect awards ranging from $150 – $3,000 with an average award of $700.

Eligible Applicants

4-week Residential, 4-week Commuter, and 6-week Policy Debate applicants are eligible to apply for Financial Aid through the NHSI.

Ineligible Applicants

The NHSI cannot offer aid awards for neither the 1-week Policy nor 2-week Public Forum Debate programs.

FACTS Application Deadlines

The Debate Division operates on a Rolling Admissions basis. You should complete your FACTS Financial Aid Application shortly after completing your initial NHSI Application and once you have submitted the required supplemental materials to complete your application.

Both applications and all required materials MUST be received by the final Financial Aid Application due date, Sunday, April 2, 2017, in order to be considered for any aid.

Outside Funding

We also encourage applicants to look into outside scholarship and Financial Aid options. Students may inquire with their school about Activities Funds, talk with the PTA, or local service clubs such as Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, or AAUW. As well, past students have successfully run Go Fund Me and Kickstarter campaigns.
