You’re going to complete what’s called a free application for federal student aid at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Once you have done this, it will open a lot of doors to receive grants and also scholarships.
Smith scholarships require that you complete a FAFSA prior to applying for the scholarship. You’re definitely going to talk to your financial aid officer or a counselor about, also other opportunities for you to receive financial aid.
