About Financial Aid
Part of the college research process is to begin to look for ways to pay for college. There are various ways to supplement what you need to pay to go to school:
Scholarships - Monetary award given to help support a student's education; this can be awarded on the basis of academic or any criteria created by the organization or individual who is giving the award.
Grants - Like scholarships, grants are also monetary support for a student's education. Most grants are government awards based on merit and/or need.
Loans - Usually from banking systems, with the understanding that the money awarded will be payed back to the loaning institution.
Work-Study - Financial support from a university in the form of a job, wherein the student works along with going to school
