Scholarships and grants are awards in the form of financial aid. These funds are distributed to deserving students in order to further education. Frequently, scholarships and grants are regarded as “gift aid” because these are free money, which means that financial aid needs not to be repaid.

Many opportunities require a FAFSA application which helps qualify students based on their needs. These applications need to be completed every 18 months and applications are accepted beginning on January 1st of each year for the upcoming academic period. Many states award scholarships based on a first come first served basis. for this reason it is important to submit your forms as early as possible to receive financial assistance.

Those who have previously filled out a FAFSA can fill out a renewal application and just update any information that has changed to avoid having to refill the 130 question application form. After submitting the form one will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) providing a summary of the FAFSA responses. Practically all students are eligible for some form of college aid, so it is well worth your time to pursue finding a scholarship or grant that you qualify for.
