Financial Aid/Scholarships

  • There are many types of financial aid to help students attend a community college, university or trade school.

    • Types of Aid:
      • Grants: No repayment required and typically are needs-based; Awarded by Federal & State Government 
      • Scholarships/Need Based: No repayment required and are awarded based on student/family's need;
      • Scholarships/Merit based: No repayment required and are awarded based on students' merits (grades, community service, activities, essays, awards, etc.); 
      • Student Loans: Repayment required, usually starting 6 months after graduation. Available from Government and from Private Institutions;
      • Work Study: Students earn money to pay for school through part-time on (and sometimes off) campus jobs. Availability varies from school to school.
