There are many options for funding higher education. Common sources include grants, loans, and scholarships. Contact the financial aid office at your college or university to explore the options available to you.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the key that opens the door to financial aid. It serves as the application for most of the financial aid from federal and state programs and from colleges and universities. Even if you are not sure that you will need financial aid, we recommend that you fill out a FAFSA anyway -- it's free.
There are many free websites that assist students in scholarship searches; check the websites listed below to help you.
