In addition to completing the application for admission and an on-campus interview, interested students must also complete the FAFSA and the LFAFA (Lake Forest Application for Financial Aid) by March 1. The scholarship is renewable for one year only.  Forester Scholarships, as well as Federal and State Grants are counted toward the value of the full-tuition scholarship.
