Scholarships

While 93% of scholarship dollars come directly from the colleges and universities, there are also numerous private scholarships. Be aware that private scholarships reduce your financial aid eligibility dollar for dollar. If you are in the situation where your EFC is higher than the COA for a year of school, then private scholarships will help you. If not, and your college or university does not meet 100% of demonstrated financial need, call the financial aid office and ask how they great private scholarships. Sometimes they will allow you to cover your unmet demonstrated need.

Now, if that didn’t make sense to you, I urge you to contact us today to schedule a private college readiness scholarship.
