Student Loans : How to Apply for Free Government Grants, Loans & Scholarships


Hello. I’m Cheri Ashwood. I’m a guidance counselor
and I’m going to tell you how to apply for free government grants, loans and scholarships.
The place that you need to start is your free application for federal student aid. That
is an online application and you can find that at this website: www.fafsa.ed.gov. In
your high school guidance counselor’s office, you’ll be able to access a worksheet. Or maybe
your college or university’s financial aid office that will help you enter information
that you’re going to be asked on the FAFSA. But it is an online only application. This
is the starting point for most government grants, loans and scholarships. And this helps
determine your EFC or your estimated family contribution, which is basically your need.
How much is the government going to give you in a grant, loan or a scholarship? Everyone
is considered to have something to contribute to their education. And so, they’re going
to balance your family need with how much they’re going to award you. In addition to
the standard Pell grants, Stafford loans, Perkins loans and such, you can also do an
Internet search. The Internet is always going to be your best resource when looking for
financial aid to further your education. Once again, I’m Cheri Ashwood. I’m very proud of
you for continuing to look towards your future. Your future starts today.

    I'd recommend anyone considering college to view College Conspiracy before making a decision. Even if you don't agree with it, it gives you a lot to think about, things you haven't heard from mainstream sources.

    @mistercooper2011 Thanks for watching our videos. I would talk to an advisor at the comunity college to be sure that the classes transfer to the four year school you plan to attend later.

    I hope a lot of people watch this and learn from it. Specially those deserving students who want to study but can't afford it. You can pursue a college education through grants.

    I went to local school during Obama presidency. My school continuously hold my grants. They offered me loans but I rejected. Sometimes I was required to request a loan while the grants arrived. So they wanted us to pay first. Administration was a mess since they wanted us to pay although our aid was on the way. The school also rose the standards requiere for aid like good GPA, etc. This is exactly the same parallel it happened before the housing crisis. Banks qualified mortgages, where they shouldn't.
