Application Process

Applications must be submitted online through TADS (a third-party financial aid assessment service), including all supplemental information and documentation.  Each applicant family will be required to pay a $40 fee to submit an application.  


PLEASE NOTE: If your family has already completed a TADS Financial Aid Assessment for another organization, you will simply need to login and add the Stacie Lee Belew Scholarship Fund (which is listed in the “Select Your School” drop-down menu) to your application and answer our Supplementary Questions.  You will NOT need to re-enter or re-submit any of your financial information, and there will be no additional fees.


To create a TADS account, go to and in the Financial Aid Assessment bar at the top, click on “Click to Log In” and then:

  1. Click on the “Create a New Account” button and follow the instructions to create your account and login.

  2. On the Getting Started page, click on “I would like to apply for financial aid”, and then select the following from the drop-down menus: State: Missouri; City: St. Louis; School: Stacie Lee Belew Scholarship Fund.

  3. Complete the application and submit.  After submitting your application via the TADS website, you will also need to immediately submit the required income documentation (2016 W-2’s and 2016 federal income tax form) to TADS per their instructions. These documents can be uploaded, faxed or mailed.

  4. For questions regarding the online application or required documentation, contact TADS Support at 1-800-884-8237 or via online chat on the TADS website.
