College Financing Options!

Financial aid is a general term that refers to all types of financial assistance available for college financing. Financial aid is available from many different sources and there are three main types of aid-Gift Aid, Work, and Loans.

Sources of Aid

1) Federal Financial Aid Programs-U. S. Department of Education

2) State Aid Programs-Department of Education in your state of residence (programs vary among states)

3) Educational Institutions-Many colleges, universities, professional, graduate, proprietary and trade schools offer financial aid.

4) Outside Scholarships-Many private companies, civic organizations, businesses, foundations, and agencies have scholarship monies available.

5) Employers-Some employers have tuition assistance and/or benefits available. An employer's Human Resource Department should be an excellent resource for this information.

6) Military-Each branch of the military offers scholarship programs of some kind that are available for education.
