FAFSA -  Why You Need It, How to Start,  http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/

 

DEFINITIONS:


Scholarships:

 Student's can apply for scholarships online or those not available online can be picked up in the College and Career Center, Room B205. Scholarships are most   often given to students for one of two reasons: achievement in academics or other areas, or financial need. 

 

Grants:

  A grant is a form of federal or state financial aid that does not need to be repaid. They are typically given to people who demonstrate financial need. Advice: Grants are amazing sources of financial aid for people with need. Need is determined by filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Every prospective college student needs to complete FAFSA even if you don't qualify for grants, you may receive scholarships or favorable loans.

 

 Loans:

  A loan originated by the government or a private bank for educational expenses.
