Scholarship Processing - March 5 New Freshman Deadline

On Monday, March 1, 2010 you may begin entering Fall/Spring 2010-2011 scholarship awards in PeopleSoft. March 5, 2010 is the deadline for all incoming new freshman scholarships to be entered in order to be included on the Estimated Financial Aid Award Notice (EFAAN) for Fall/Spring 2010-2011.

NOTE:  The Office of Student Finance sends estimated financial aid award packages to all incoming freshmen in March so that they are better able to make a decision on what school they choose to attend.  Any scholarship award that is not included in this estimated package could have a negative impact on their decision to attend the U of M because they would have an incomplete financial picture.  Therefore, Student Finance asks that all departments do their best to have freshmen scholarships entered by March 5.  Many colleges/departments work with Admissions to award these freshmen students. The remaining scholarships for continuing students need to be entered before July 1st so that they are included in the actual financial aid packages that are created and sent out in early July.

U of M Foundation Training

The U of M Foundation is offering a special training session for CLA staff.  This is your opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Foundation.  It will provide a "big picture" perspective along with the "nuts and bolts" of foundation endowment management.  The session is scheduled for Thursday, March 25th from 1:30-3:00.  It will be held at the McNamara Alumni Center, 5th Floor Board Room.  The senior accountants on the financial service teams will be attending.  Any interested administrators and center directors are also welcome and encouraged to attend.  Please contact Rose Pederson (r-kerb@umn.edu) to let her know if you will be attending so that we know how many to expect.  Also, if you have questions in advance of the training, let Rose know so that your specific questions can be covered.
