Need-based aid is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Seniors and their parents can complete the FAFSA beginning in October of their senior year. Upon completing the FAFSA, you will get a number called the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). This is used to determine eligibility for aid from the college of your choice and may be requested on scholarship applications.

You may wish to create a free account on the Tuition Funding Sources website, which features a "scholarship of the day" as well as a personal scholarship list you can develop from their database of 7 million opportunities.
