Thinking about going to school and need money but don’t think that you can qualify for any financial aid? Think again. Although it is a common misconception that only some people can qualify for financial aid, in reality, almost every US citizen can qualify for some kind of financial aid, whether it be a grant, scholarship, or loan. The key is to apply for them.
Sallie Mae has just come out with a new resource center made to educate students about applying for financial aid with FAFSA. According to their study in August 2009, 24 percent of families did not fill out an application in the last school year with half stating that they were unaware of the availability of aid or think they would be able to qualify for it. The new resource center contains videos on how to fill out the FAFSA form as well as financial aid tips.
