Are you a U.S. citizen?

Lincoln Public Schools students who are non-U.S. citizens and are applying for financial aid need to begin processing visas in October in order to qualify for financial assistance. Please include verification with this application, e.g. a dated copy of the paper(s) filed. The Scholarship Committee will not award aid unless enough time is available to process non-citizens' documents. The State Department assures us that several months are needed, so beginning in December is too late to ensure receipt of documents. Non-U.S. citizens who do not include verification with this application will not be considered.
