Apply for an FC DELCO Scholarship

How to Apply for an FC DELCO Scholarship:

Step 1- Create an Account

 

1. Please click here, on the SSS Family Portal login page to complete your online application and click on the prompt to begin the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). The application is available in English and Spanish.

 

2. You will create a user name and password, which will allow you to complete the PFS over more than one session. This will give you time to gather the required information for your application.

  1.  Please select FC DELCO as your designated school of choice. Our school code is: 200079. Only one PFS is needed per family regardless of the number of children applying. However, in the case of separated or divorced families, each parent must complete the entire process with SSS.
  2. A $51 fee is required to submit your Parent Financial Statement to SSS. If you feel this fee is a hardship you may contact FC DELCO Finance Director, Susan Panacek, to make alternative arrangements. The $51 application fee is payable to SSS and is not a payment toward your FC DELCO player fees for the upcoming season.

Note: For families who wish to share their financial information as part of a financial aid application with another institution (for example: a college or private school), you can select "other schools" at no additional charge.

 

Step 2- Upload Financial Documents

1. Scan all required financial documents and upload to the SSS website. All materials submitted to SSS are secure.

The required documents include:

  • completed signed tax returns that show your player is your dependent for the last 2 years
  • corporate tax returns for business owners (if applicable)
  • W-2s for the most recent year

2. Click here to download our accompanying form. Complete the information and scan and upload this form with your financial documents to the SSS Website.

  • If you do not have the ability to scan, please mail the documents to:

Step 3- Due Dates and Timelines

The deadline to complete the application is Thursday, December 19, 2019, to allow sufficient processing time. 

 

Families who are not registered or do not complete this process with SSS will not be considered for financial aid awards.

 

Families will be notified by mail of the financial aid decisions in mid-January.

Your application must be complete including all requested documents in order to be considered for a scholarship. 

 

An FC DELCO application received past the deadline, and/or applications that are incomplete or do not include all of the required paperwork will not be guaranteed any scholarship money or receive a sufficiently reduced amount if available.

About Our Scholarship Process.

The Scholarship Fund is utilized for financial aid awards and is funded by the generous donations, fundraising events including the annual Black and Gold Dinner. Scholarship awards are available from FC DELCO to support player program fees (excluding travel expenses) based upon financial need.

Our financial assistance application process utilizes the services of School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) to collect basic financial information that gives us a snapshot of your family's financial situation. SSS does a comprehensive, standardized analysis of the information received and, upon completion, submits a report to FC DELCO Scholarship Committee, which provides an estimated amount that your family can contribute toward your FC DELCO player fees for the upcoming season. FC DELCO will use this information to help determine scholarship awards for our players. All applications and financial information are kept confidential. FC DELCO does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, sex, or ethnic origin.
