APPLICATION AGREEMENT

I understand that in order to be considered for the Gate of Opportunity Scholarship I must be offered fall 2014 freshman admission to Berry College by the Office of Admissions and that Berry must receive my official 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) results by Wednesday, February 5, 2014 at 5:00pm Eastern. I understand that it typically takes 5-7 business days for Berry College to receive official FAFSA results once I have completed it.

I also understand that the Gate of Opportunity Scholarship is a year-round, residential scholarship program that involves significant commitment to Berry’s work experience program, academics, professional development and stewardship activities. 

I certify that the answers given on this application are true and complete to the best of my knowledge. I also verify that I - the student listed on this form - completed this application myself.
