Scholarships can be used to reduce the loan and/or work components of a financial aid package or supplement the family contribution. Outside scholarships must be reported to ensure that financial aid awards remain in compliance with federal regulations.
- Inquire about financial aid programs sponsored by your or your parents’ employers.
- Pursue financial aid scholarships on the web and through your church, public school system, local businesses, grocery stores, department stores, banks, credit unions, pharmaceutical companies, national brands and companies such as Tylenol, Pepsi-Cola, Kellogg’s, Wal-Marts, K-Marts, etc.
- Also check with local civic groups and professional organizations.
Scholarships are out there, you just have to take the time to look for them and then apply!
