File for Federal Student Aid
Everyone should go online and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid: This link will open in a new browser window www.fafsa.ed.gov. Many other scholarships, grants and loans are based on the federal government's calculations from this form.
Scholarships and Grants
Scholarships and grants are basically gifts which you don't have to pay back. However, they are often awarded based on financial need or on some type of merit. The trick is to figure out what you're skilled at, and seek out scholarships that find merit in that particular skill. In addition, scholarships and grants may also be awarded based on the career that you are pursuing (for instance teaching or science). Lastly, your local community, associations and organizations may award scholarships because you happen to live in their geographical area.
