  • A grant is money that is given for college expenses that does NOT have to be paid back. You or your child would have to fill out a FAFSA to see what you are eligible for. There are also websites that have BILLIONS of dollars in grants and scholarships available. Two that I use are and

    Contact the college financial aid office for other sources or the high school counselor. Go to college financial aid nights at the high school. The Pell Grant is based on financial need and is easy to get. Others, it depends on the grant and source of the grant. Some are as easy as filling out an application and some need essay's. Some are based on need, gpa or other requirements.
