In an effort to assess the financial need of Boone County students, we are requiring that ALL applicants for scholarships complete a College Costs Estimator form and corresponding release form, even if one has been completed previously.  A summary report based on the applicants’ completed College Costs Estimators will be generated for CFBC by The National Center for College Costs, providing CFBC and the scholarship committee with enough information to evaluate the financial need factor in the selection process ONLY FOR THOSE SCHOLARSHIPS THAT CONSIDER FINANCIAL NEED.
