College is expensive, but there is good news – a lot of free money is available! Here you’ll find out how to access scholarships that could help you pay for tuition, books and other education-related expenses.
You definitely won’t get scholarship money if you don’t try, so you have nothing to lose by applying.
(Seniors - be sure you’ve completed the FAFSA, as many scholarship applications require it and most colleges will not offer financial aid packages without it completed.)
