Financial Aid – www.fafsa.ed.gov
Money for any financial aid package comes primarily from four sources: the federal government, the state government, colleges themselves, and private programs. The federal government supplies the most financial aid. Federal grant programs include Pell Grants and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG). Loans include National Direct Student Loans (GSL), and the new Parent's Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS). The Federal College Work-Study Program (CWS) provides work aid. Federal aid is awarded on the basis of need. The state of Indiana has scholarship and work programs for residents. State aid may be based on need, merit, or a combination of the two.
Colleges offer a wide variety of financial aid programs funded from their own resources and most have their own scholarship and grant programs. Deadlines and criteria vary greatly, so check with institutions' financial aid offices as far in advance as possible. Also, many private organizations provide aid to students. See if your parents' employers, labor unions, or professional associations provide programs. Check with your counselor, school library, or public library for books, articles, and pamphlets about financial aid. The Internet is also an excellent resource.
During your senior year, there will be class meetings and many announcements in regard to financial aid. In January of your senior year, you may apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You may also apply for one or more locally sponsored scholarships listed on the Senior Information part of our webpage.
