NSPA member Oregon Community Foundation shared this great resource with NSPA, in which they advise their selection committee members:

Selection committees should note that the remaining financial need amount listed for students in their application materials has not been updated to reflect students’ reality during the coronavirus crisis. That number is based on FAFSA and ORSAA information which uses prior, prior year (2018) tax information. Selection committees should consider the financial impact the current crisis is having on students and consider awarding larger scholarships if the fund’s spending policy allows.
