Financial Aid & Scholarships

The APS Education Foundation has created the Varsity Award Scholarship for Albuquerque Public School seniors in the Class of 2022. Seven scholarships will be awarded through a random drawing in the amount of $1000 each. For a complete explanation of entry requirements, please review this Google Doc:

Students can submit this form up to 10 times (once for each category).

To enter, select the category that you have completed and upload documentation showing completion. You can upload a document or picture of a document. You can only receive one entry per category, so there is no need to enter multiple times for an individual category.

The deadline for entries is March 31, 2022.


The FSA ID is a username and password combination you use to log in to U.S. Department of Education (ED) online systems. The FSA ID is your legal signature and shouldn’t be created or used by anyone other than you.  You’ll use your FSA ID every year you fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form and for the lifetime of your federal student loans.

To create your FSA ID, you will need:   Your social security number, a cell phone, and a personal email address.


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is a form completed by current and prospective college students in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid. By completing your FAFSA you could be eligible for grants, work study, or federal student loans.
