FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid


It is important that you consider how you are going to pay for your post-secondary education.  There are many scholarships and grants available, but you have to apply for them.  Be sure to look for opportunities and meet all deadlines.


  • Fill out the FAFSA 


  • Contact the Financial Aid office of your school and ask about scholarships

  • Use a scholarship search engine like Fastweb to look for scholarships

  • Talk to parents, teachers, and your guidance counselor - don't assume anything

  • Don't delay - by the time your senior year ends, many scholarship deadlines have passed.
