The FAFSA and Scholarships
The FAFSA and scholarships, they often rely on each other! The FAFSA is an important part of getting financial aid for college AND for winning scholarship money.
Last week’s tip (here) stressed the importance of becoming familiar with and filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in a timely matter in order to get as much federal and state financial aid as possible for college.
In addition to this aid, many scholarship applications include a box to check to ask whether the student has submitted a FAFSA and applied for government aid.
Scholarship providers want to know that the student is doing everything possible to get financial help in paying for college and filling out the FAFSA is a very important step in the process.
Even if a family thinks they make too much money to receive federal aid, the FAFSA still should be submitted; as it may qualify them for low-interest loans and shows scholarship providers they are serious about finding money to help pay for school.
The FAFSA and scholarships go hand-in-hand.
Never assume a family makes too much money and ignore the FAFSA, just do it!BONUS: Get your FREE copy of my 10 BEST COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP TIPS that will show you how to find and win more money for school by clicking here now
