Financial Aid for College
Grants and Scholarships
Interested in financial aid that does not have to be repaid after you graduate from college? There are several grants and scholarships designed to assist Missouri residents who are interested in attending one of Missouri’s reputable postsecondary institutions.
Information regarding debt minimization strategies, your rights and responsibilities, interest, avoiding default, and repayment options are just a sprinkling of topics addressed to ensure you understand the “ins” and “outs” of student loans.
Filling out the FAFSA
Each year, about 15 million students apply for grants, work-study, and loans for college using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid – the FAFSA. By completing it, students apply to the U.S. Department of Education, the largest source of student aid in America. In many cases, the FAFSA is the only application needed for students to obtain aid from their state or college, too.
