This does require filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after October 1, but before the start of the academic year, and completing any federal or state grant applications by their deadlines. Once the university has received FAFSA data, a complete financial aid package will be provided that details overall aid eligibility. This award is not transferable and nor is it stackable with any other scholarship from Harrisburg University. Questions can be addressed to Sinfanti@HarrisburgU.edu
