Financial Aid 

Financial Aid can include everything from gift aid (free money in the form of scholarships and grants) to earned money (like Federal Work Study) to student and parent loans.  Financial Aid can come from an institution of higher learning itself, the Federal Government, your state government, or outside agencies and sources.  There could be several different things you need to apply and several deadlines you need to keep track of.  Always consult with the Financial Aid Office at the schools you are interested in for more information and assistance.  Below are several resources to help you find the most money for school.
