Financial Aid Resources

 

It’s never too early to begin looking for scholarships. You can start your search on free websites like Fastweb and the College Board. You may also be eligible for scholarships and grants specific to your college or university, and even some high schools will offer local scholarships and award them to college-bound students.

When you find a scholarship for which you qualify, its application instructions should be included. For scholarships, you may need to write an essay. Be sure to pay attention to all the rules and guidelines, as well as any deadlines.

For grants and loans, the application process typically is easier. Most grants and loans simply require you to complete the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

The FAFSA is used to determine your financial need and can qualify you for need-based loans and grants. Originally created to qualify individuals for federal aid only, the FAFSA is now used to determine most need-based aid, federal and otherwise.

Seniors can apply for Federal Aid using the FAFSA after October 1st of their senior year. You will need your previous year tax information.    http://www.studentaid.ed.gov  It is recommended that you apply earlier than later.
