Financial Aid Awards

The US Department of Education distributes $150 billion per year in grants, work-study, and low-interest student loans. Surprisingly, elite colleges and universities offer the greatest financial aid opportunities for students, due to their enormous endowments. To begin the search for financial aid, you'll need to fill out the FAFSA, the federal student aid application. Please note that financial aid deadlines are strictly enforced, so submit your application early. Literally millions of students that would have qualified for some financial aid didn't even apply for it, or were late in submitting required forms. The official FAFSA website is fafsa.ed.gov. Be aware of the differences in tuition for in-state versus out-of-state residents, and the documentation required that may enable reclassification as an in-state student after completion of the freshman year.

Grants, Scholarships, and Loans

A Federal Pell Grant, unlike student loans, does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have never earned a bachelors or professional degree. The grant distribution will depend on demonstrated financial need, according to the FAFSA application, the cost of attendance, your status as a full-time or part-time student, and your plans to attend school for a full academic year or less. You may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from any more than one educational institution at a time.

Students who receive Federal Pell Grants and have extreme financial need will receive FSEOG grants first. The FSEOG grant program is administered directly by participating schools, so check with your financial aid office to find out if your school offers the FSEOG. Each participating school receives a certain amount of FSEOG funds each year from the US Department of Education, via the office of Federal Student Aid. This system works differently from the Federal Pell Grant Program, which provides grant funding to each eligible student.

The Scholarships.com website rates the relevancy of each scholarship, but FastWeb.com offers a larger scholarship database. Borrowers of privately subsidized student loans may face the same restrictions to bankruptcy discharge as in the case of government based loans. Loan programs generally issue loans based on the credit history of the applicant and any applicable cosigner. This is in contrast to federal loan programs that deal primarily with need-based criteria, as defined by the FAFSA form. Finally, student credit cards may seem like a good short-term solution to financial need, but the interest rates are high, and credit cards often carry an annual fee. If you do end up using credit cards to meet some expenses, pay off the outstanding balance in full every month.

Business & Medical Job Listings

Although most jobs which pay six-figure salaries require a college degree, technical fields offer high salaries based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Students will impress future bosses more with an impressive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as a consultant for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
