1. If you have not already done so, please complete & submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid - http://www.fafsa.ed.gov ) This is the form to use to apply for possible Federal student aid (grant funds and Federal student loan funds.) 2. Please see this web site from the well-respected publication US News and World Report: * http://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/paying-for-college It contains links to good articles explaining the many types of student aid. Click on most of the links that seem relevant & read all the info given. 3. Visit your local public library & ask a reference librarian to help you find these books (either in the library collection or from another library - InterLibrary Loan): Title: Debt-free U: how I paid for an outstanding college education without loans, scholarships, or mooching off my parents Author: Zac Bissonnette Publisher: New York: Portfolio/Penguin, 2010 Title: Peterson s how to get money for college: financing your future beyond federal aid, 2011 Publisher: Lawrenceville, N.J.: Peterson s, 2010 This is updated and published annually. Title: The College Solution: A Guide for Everyone Looking for the Right School at the Right Price (2nd edition) Author: Lynn O Shaughnessy Publisher: FT Press (will be published May, 2012 - if the library does not have it on order you can ask that they order a copy; you can have a "hold" placed on the book so you can be notified when it is available for you to check out) Title: The Ultimate Scholarship Book 2012: Billions of Dollars in Scholarships, Grants and Prizes (4th edition) Authors: Gen Tanabe, Kelly Tanabe Publisher: Supercollege, Llc;, 2011 If you do not hold a valid public library borrower card, telephone the library & ask what ID you will need to bring with you to the library Circulation/Check Out Desk to apply for one. Check the books out, read them through, & apply as many as the tips as you can. 4. If you have identified the school you wish to attend, then go to that school s web pages and learn what you need to do to apply + look at the school s info on Financial Aid. They may have scholarship/grant funds for just their own students. You can call the school Fin. Aid Office & speak with a adviser, too. 5. If you are considering a for-profit/career/proprietary school (one which often advertises on TV during the daytime or late at night & which may advertise online-only classes/taking classes in your PJs), be very careful. Ask a reference librarian at the public library to help you research the school, it s reputation, the graduation and post-graduation/relevant job-placement rates of it s students, & even student reviews. The College Prowler web site is a good one for looking at student reviews: * http://www.collegeprowler.com If the school is not accredited by one of the well-respected regional academic accrediting agencies listed on this U.S. Dept. of Education web site, then be very suspect of it: * http://www2.ed.gov/admins/finaid/accred/accreditation_pg6.html#RegionalInstitutional The regional accrediting bodies will all have a geographical region in their names: Middle States, New England, North Central, Northwest, Southern, or Western. Proper academic accreditation is a Big Deal! 6. The best cost & education deal will be at a local community college (sometimes called a junior college or a regional technical college.) 7. The application deadlines for many scholarships for use in the 2012-13 school yr. (starting Fall 2012) have already passed. These 2 older (2010 and 2011) US News and World Report articles list some late deadline scholarships: * http://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/paying-for-college/scholarships/articles/2010/04/29/late-deadline-scholarships The deadlines given are for 2010. The deadline dates for 2012 will be similar. A number of them listed are really "contests" & through sites that require registration resulting in spam email to you. * http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/the-scholarship-coach/2011/03/31/8-scholarships-for-procrastinators-and-overachievers You can also look for scholarships for which you may qualify/to which you may wish to apply by using what I think is the best, most reliable database: Scholarship Search offered by the well-respected College Board: * https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/scholarship-search Click on the Start button. If you choose to register (free – registration is not required to use Scholarship Search) to return later & modify your search strategy, feel secure that you will not receive spam emails. Don t select too many defining terms in your search strategy, which may result in a poor scholarship search result. 8. Be sure to talk (by phone or in-person) with an Admissions counselor at the school that interests you, too. Librarians--Ask Us, We Answer! Best wishes
