Scholarships and Grants

With college costs rising, here are some general guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Don’t limit the colleges you are considering based on cost alone. Many schools offer need-based aid or work-study programs.
  • If you need money to pay for school, federal loans may be a good choice.
  • If your circumstances change, contact your college’s financial aid office. You may be eligible for an adjusted aid package. For federal aid applications, visit FAFSA Federal Student Aid.
