Money for College or Trade $chool

Graduating $eniors: It'$ time to $tart thinking about thi$!

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA is one of the first steps you need to take when thinking about money for college. The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Anyone who wants financial aid for college will need to fill out the FAFSA. The application is used to determine the dollar amount you or your family will be expected to contribute towards college. All federal grant and loan awards are determined by the FAFSA, and nearly all colleges use the FAFSA as the basis for their own financial aid awards.

Liberty Community Scholarship Application

Another great option to "find" money for college or trade school is the Liberty Community Scholarship. You fill out one application and you are eligible to apply for as many scholarships as you qualify for!
