The United States government and all U.S. state governments provide merit and need-based student aid including grants, work-study, and loans. As of 2010 there are nine federal and 605 state student aid programs and many of the nearly 7,000 post-secondary institutions provide merit aid. Individual colleges and universities may provide grants and need or merit-based scholarships.
The application for 2011-2012 Freshman scholarships is available as on August 1, 2010.
The 2011-2012 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available from January 1, 2011. The priority deadline to be considered for maximum grant eligibility is March 31, 2011.
The majority of scholarship offers will be made during the months of March and April 2011. Financial Aid notifications will begin in early April 2011.
States provide students more than $10.2 billion of aid every year.
To qualify for federal, state, and institutional aid, a student must prepare a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year. The earliest filing date is January 1 for the forthcoming academic year.
Most aid is provided on a first-come, first-served basis so it is essential that students prepare and submit their aid applications in as close to January 1 as possible.
