Financial Aidhttp://www.fafsa.ed.gov/

It is necessary to submit the FREEApplication for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)in order to be considered for most federal financial aid programs. Many state financial aid programs and various scholarships also require the submission of the FAFSA. The Department of Education processes the FAFSA and notifies applicant with the Student Aid Report (SAR).

Scholarships

As you begin your scholarship search, please keep in mind the following:

Sifting through the lists of scholarships will take time and may even prove frustrating as you read through lists of criteria, but a few hours of work may pay off with a few hundred or even a few thousand dollars (not necessarily a free ride, but every amount counts)! It should not cost money to win money! Be wary of scholarship applications that charge a fee.

Be wary of companies that charge a fee for finding you grants and scholarships…everyone can apply for grants and scholarships on their own.

If you join a scholarship search service (one that required personal data) be aware that you may be signing yourself up for lots of junk mail.

If you are told that you have received an award for which you never applied, be wary!!
