Financial aid is money to help pay for higher education (college, career school, etc.). Financial aid can come from federal, state, school, and private sources to help students pay for their education.
To qualify for many types of aid, Seniors will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which opens on October 1. This application gives you access to these types of aid:
- Grants & Scholarships: Money you do not need to pay back
- Work-study jobs: Paid, part-time work that’s generally on campus
- Loans: Money you need to pay back, usually after you graduate
Students should also be logging into Naviance account where the Post Grad team is constantly updating the Scholarships page. For help logging into Naviance or finding scholarships on Naviance, please see your Counselor or the Post Grad office.
