Scholarships and grants are great free sources of money. You can read about them here:
Here are some sites you can check out that offer grants and scholarships:
Federal Aid or if you fall under a certain income level you might qualify for Pell grants which is free money.
Also, scholorships and GI Bill if you consider military service.
Apply for a grant. Log on and type in a search for a education grants, read them over and see if you can find one that fits you.
Another way is to apply for financial aid. If you are low income, you can get much of your money as a grant, you may have a partial loan too, but you will not have to start paying it back until one year after you graduate.
First, fill out your FAFSA (Free application for Federal Student Aid - http://www.fafsa.ed.gov). You could be eligible for Pell Grants and other free (i.e. you don't have to pay it back) money for school.
For scholarships, there are a multitude of legit search engines like http://www.fastweb.com or http://scholarshipamerica.org/ - good luck!
schra YOU CAN! I found interesting information about your answer, college loans, scholarships, college grants & partime works here. http://all-student-loan-consolidation.bl... Good luck!
First, you know know that private scholarships amount to only about 3% 0f the cost of tuition. They are VERY competitive and usually are only a few hundred dollars. Try www.fastweb.com
You should complete the FAFSA to and subit it to the schools you are applying to. They will make decisions based on this information. However, different schools will offer different amount of grants based on the same FAFSA. They just use the FAFSA as a guide. Some schools offer grants that do not have to be paid back, others loans. Try to avoid loans. Next, many schools have money that is available and not based on financial need (non-need based aid). It's tough to know which schools offer that kind of aid and how much each one offers. This information is kept pretty close to the vest. Best way is to ask the fin. aid office how much "non-need based aid" students receive. I have a bimonthly newsletter that might help (no spam, promise).
