There Is Free College Money Available

It is no secret.  You can get free college money.  All you need to do is find it.  Very few people actually pay the stated cost in the pursuit of higher education.  If you don’t do your homework, you will not learn that there is free college money to be had.  You can find it with…

  • The federal government
  • The state government
  • The college itself
  • Outside sources

Let’s start with the federal government.  You will need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  When the school receives your paperwork, they will determine the amount of free money you are eligible to receive.

With the state government, these grant aids very from state to state.  You will need to check with your state grant agency to see if you qualify and what you must do to get some of this free college money.

Each year, colleges publish the cost each student will have to pay to attend.  How many students do you know that pay the full price?  You will not usually find out how much your financial aid will be until you receive your financial aid award letter sometime during the spring or summer prior to the fall term.

When using outside sources, never pay for scholarship search; they are for free.  Ask your church, your social organization, your parent’s employer, your employer and so on about whether they have scholarships through work or through the Lion’s Club, Rotary, etc.

Apply for every scholarship that you think you can qualify for.  Whether it is merely a $250 scholarship or a scholarship worth thousands of dollars.  Even scholarships with little earning multiply into scholarships worth a lot of money.  Numerous scholarships that are small in value do add up.  And…each little bit helps as you look for free money to attend college.
