Financial aid can be categorized in two ways: financial need-based, and non need-based. Keep in mind that students and their parents are responsible for paying what they can; financial aid is a supplement, not a substitute, for family resources. For non-need based aid, factors generally include academic excellence, ethnic background, or organization membership. Corporations may also offer assistance to employees and children.
States offer residents a variety of scholarships, loans, and tuition exemptions.
Colleges and Universities
Higher education institutions provide some 20% of aid, most need-based. Check university websites and the institution’s financial aid office when you apply for admission.
Targeted Aid for Special Groups
Federal assistance programs seek to encourage people to work in geographic areas or professions where there’s a particular need (such as doctors in underserved areas); encourage underrepresented groups to enter a particular profession; and provide aid in exchange for services provided (such as military service).
