In addition to Federal and State Financial Aid, students are encouraged to explore all avenues of scholarships and educational assistance that does not need to be repaid. Free money is a fine thing! Apply, apply, apply! The more “free money” you get, the less debt money (i.e.student loans) you need!
Explore all options EARLY! Most scholarship deadlines are between January and April and awards are made for the following academic year. Some scholarships require that you file for Federal and State aid as well so you are strongly encouraged to file www.FAFSA.ed.gov by mid February every year for best results!
