Scholarships: Scholarships are awards given to students based on their academic achievements, talents, or other qualifications. Many organizations, universities, and foundations offer scholarships. Research and apply for scholarships that align with your interests and qualifications.
Working part-time during the school year and full-time during breaks can help you cover some of your college costs. Look for on-campus jobs or local employment opportunities that fit your schedule.
FAFSA: Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is essential to access federal financial aid programs, such as Pell Grants, Federal Work-Study, and federal student loans.
Federal Work-Study: This federal program provides part-time job opportunities to help students earn money to cover educational expenses.
Federal Loans: Federal student loans, such as Stafford Loans and PLUS Loans, are often more favorable than private loans, offering lower interest rates and flexible repayment options. You can apply for federal loans through the FAFSA.
