NJ STARS Award • Students who are awarded enough federal and/or state-based financial aid to pay the tuition portion of their bill are considered “unfunded” NJ STARS students. Unfunded NJ STARS students are not awarded NJ STARS scholarships, however the federal and state financial aid process must be completed each academic year by posted deadlines to qualify for NJ STARS II scholarships. • NJ TAG (New Jersey Tuition Aid Grant) is a state-based financial aid award, and NJ STARS (New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship) is a merit based award. Some students may receive both but they are two totally different awards. • Students who are awarded NJ TAG must complete their FAFSA and the New Jersey Additional Application Questions by April 15th each year or they may temporarily or permanently become ineligible for NJ STARS scholarships. New and continuing students who did not receive NJ TAG have more time to complete the process but should still do so early in case any issues arise. • As long as the financial aid review process is complete for both federal and state financial aid, and students are in good standing, students who are not awarded financial aid, and students who are awarded only partial federal and/or state financial aid will see an Estimated NJ STARS award in the financial aid section of their BCC student portal. • Estimated awards will not be shown until all NJ STARS students are certified on HESAA Roster which is usually sometime in late November during Fall semesters, and sometime in late April during Spring semesters. • Once an estimated award appears in the BCC student portal, you should also see the award in the HESAA student portal. It will first show as unpaid but when a green dollar sign appears, the NJ STARS payment has been made to Bergen Community College. • Students who receive NJ STARS scholarships will first see an “Estimated” NJ STARS award in their student portal. Please do not accept estimated awards. Once applied to your bill, the award will no longer show as estimated. 25

Point Spread Function  To show this point better, consider a “perfect” instrument that perhaps has noise, but shows stars as perfect point sources. Let’s generate an image of some stars:     To see the effect of observing such a star pattern with an instrument, convolve the star image with the sinc function representing the diffraction pattern of the instrument (the point spread function or PSF):    stars = randn(size(X))*0.1; stars(50,50) = 1; stars(20,37) = 4; stars(87,74) = 2; stars(45,24) = 0.5; imagesc(stars) Z = sinc(sqrt(X.^2 + Y.^2)*5).^2; % the *5 makes it smaller/sharper imagesc(conv2(stars,Z)) You see that the result is twice as large due to the way convolution works. Try    fuzzy = conv2(stars,Z); colormap(gray(256)); imagesc(stars); axis square imagesc(fuzzy(51:150,51:150)); axis square Apr 23, 2010
