DO YOU NEED MONEY FOR COLLEGE?
When planning how you are going to pay for your education, begin with financial aid available form the federal government. Aid is available through grants (money you don’t have to repay), work-study programs that provide part-time jobs on campus to earn money to help pay education expenses, and loans (this is money you will have to repay, with interest). It is important for you to understand financial aid, so learn the difference between the three types of aid.
Now you understand the three types of Federal Student Aid, don’t overlook scholarships! Make sure you have explored the tab “Funding Opportunities at ECU” for scholarships (free money!) offered in your field of study. But you must apply! Someone is going to receive that free money – and it could be you...so apply!
What exactly is a scholarship? It is free money given to deserving students who apply! There are hundreds of scholarships available, but you must make the effort to apply. If you want even more resources, check this out! No scholarship amount is too small! They add up, so APPLY!
