Types of Financial Aid
There are many scholarships sponsored by foundations, corporations, or other organizations.
Grants are money given to help students pay for college expenses and do not have to be repaid like loans. Most Federal Grants and State Grants are awarded based on financial need and other eligibility factors. The amounts may vary from year to year.
Loans must be repaid, usually starting after graduation. Many education loans feature deferred payments and generous payback schedules. The federal government sponsors a number of student loan programs, as do some private lenders.
Work-study jobs on campus or during summer breaks provide income to offset expenses and can be important sources of experience.
