Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarships and Financial Aid

The key to affording college is knowledge—
knowing not only how to pay for it, but also, 
and more importantly, where to look to find the 
resources that will allow students to afford a 
college education.

Aid is available from the federal government in 
the form of grants, work-study, and loans.

Tips for Success: Finding Scholarships

Many agencies, associations and organizations (for example, corporations, civic, religious and philanthropic groups, and associations connected with a specific career field) provide money for college students. Each scholarship provider has its own application and its own rules to decide who can get its scholarship. The scholarship process requires time, work, and dedication on the part of students and parents as well as school personnel.

Although many scholarships are awarded for academic success, others are given for athletic ability, extracurricular activities, 
specific major interests, community involvement, and citizenship. Scholarships may be granted on need basis or on non-need basis depending upon the organization or institution granting the scholarship.
