How To Really Position Yourself For Getting The Maximum
Amount in College Scholarships and Grants
The bottom line? Most of the available college scholarships
and grants can be obtained by knowing the ins and outs of the financial
aid SYSTEM, applying LEGAL strategies within the system, and filling out
your FAFSA, CSS PROFILE, and other aid forms in a way that positions you
to receive the most "free money" financial aid possible.
In addition, another problem with obtaining private
college scholarships on your own is that the Financial Aid Officer (FAO)
at your chosen college will most likely deduct the amount of your award
from your aid package, which means your college costs remain the same.
Here's an example:
Let's say you've chosen to attend college at UCLA and
have been awarded a financial aid package of $8,000 ($5,000 in grants
& scholarships; $3,000 in student loans).
Now on top of that, suppose you also apply for a college
scholarship through a local Kiwanis Club that dad is a member of, and
are awarded a $2,500 scholarship!
You've just reduced your college costs, right? Most
You see, all outside college scholarships you receive
have to be reported to the school you're attending. And in most cases,
your college will deduct the exact amount of your private scholarship
from your $8,000 financial aid package. It'd be great if the reduction
is in the loans portion of your package, but it's usually from the grants
& scholarships side.
What just happened? You reduced costs for the college,
not yourself. All that time and effort for nothing!
Anyway, if you want to know the REAL DEAL on how to
get the maximum amount in "free money" grants & scholarships for college,
