Types of Financial Aid
There are many scholarships sponsored by foundations, corporations, or other organizations.
Grants do not need to be repaid. Some are awarded based on financial need; others recognize academic ability or performance in areas such as music, or athletics.
Loans must be repaid, usually starting after graduation. Many education loans feature deferred payments and generous payback schedules. The federal government sponsors a number of student loan programs, as do some private lenders.
Work-study jobs on campus or during summer breaks provide income to offset expenses and can be important sources of experience.
Federal Loans must be repaid. Be sure you understand your options and responsibilities. The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program is the largest federal student loan program. Under this program, the U.S. Department of Education is your lender. For more information please visit our Financial Aid Loan information pages.
