of Education Financial Aid Explore
This site explains the various types of college financial aid that are made available by the U.S. Department of Education. There are links to scholarships, grants, work study, and loans that are awarded based on strict formulas that calculate any students' ability to pay for college. The site also allows you (for a fee) to fill out your financial aid application online. Just for the record, there is a fee involved whether you complete your application online or on paper.
fastWEB! (Financial Aid Search Through the Web)
An online (FREE!) search service for college scholarships that are based on need, merit (grades, character, etc.) and just about any other criteria you can imagine. After you submit an online profile of yourself by answering questions concerning your skills, accomplishments, and background, scholarships you might be eligible for are suggested, along with the addresses/phone numbers you will need. One nice feature allows you to set up an online mailbox which you can check every few days to receive updates on new scholarships.
FinAid: The Financial Aid Information Page
A very comprehensive financial information page, with links to reviews of books on applying for scholarships, worksheets that allow you determine precisely how much money the U.S. Department of Education thinks that you should be able to contribute to your college education (based on your family's economic situation), types of college experiences including study abroad, other free online scholarship search services, and much, much more.
