    That is not something you have to make a point of on your application. But if only tuition is paid, you should still check the box YES for applying for financial aid, so that you can get funds for the rest of your expenses including room and board. You will also fill out the FAFSA and submit it by the deadline.

    It is the financial aid office that needs to know you will be getting outside funds. I'm not exactly sure of the order. You fill out whatever the school needs to give you aid. When you are accepted, they will send you a financial aid letter. At some point you let them know you are getting the outside funds. They will then adjust your aid accordingly.

    The best place to get answers from is the admissions office. You can send them an email to tell them you are an applicant and you will have outside aid due to being a foster child. Ask them how and when your should inform them of the tuition aid you will be getting.
