Scholarship Websites

The largest amount of scholarship money comes from the colleges themselves. Check out all of the colleges you are considering to see if you are competitive for their academic and merit based awards. 

There is a wide variety of information about scholarships available online. Most websites are reliable; however, use caution when visiting websites.  Never give out personal information, such as social security number, credit card or bank account information.  Legitimate scholarship websites will not charge a fee for scholarships searches or scholarship applications.

Financial Aid

Financial aid in a nutshell

Financial aid makes up the difference between what college costs and what a family can afford to pay. Approximately two-thirds of full-time undergraduate college students receive some sort of financial aid.

There are three main types of financial aid:

  • Loans that have to be repaid
  • Grants and scholarships that don't have to be repaid
  • Employment programs, such as work-study, that allow students to earn money and gain job experience while still in school
