Scholarships and Grants
College costs shouldn't stand in the way of you achieving your
goals, which is why it's important to research any grants and
scholarships for which you might be eligible.
Grants: Grants are most often awarded based on
a student's financial need, which is identified through completing
the Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA). Grants are funded through federal, state,
and college resources, and are often renewable for multiple years,
but you must complete the FAFSA annually to qualify.

Scholarships: Scholarships are usually awarded
based on the student's academic achievements, community service,
special circumstance or the major or career they're pursuing. You
can apply for as many scholarships as time allows, so be sure to do
your homework early by researching their criteria and submitting
your applications on time. High school juniors and seniors are
encouraged to apply for 1-3 scholarships per week.
