Chalk Talk: Beyond the FAFSA: What Next?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the primary source of financial aid for students, but the process doesn’t have to stop there. The college’s financial aid department is the best resource for further information. They might know of additional scholarships or might have leeway to reconsider a financial aid package when extenuating circumstances come into play. They can also let applicants know about any scholarships available for high-achieving students, called merit scholarships, or students who fit into a certain demographic or have some quality in their background that is specific to a scholarship. Students are often automatically considered for these scholarships. But there are other moneys available. Many businesses and organizations offer scholarships for employees’ families or students who fulfill certain criteria. Many times, these scholarships require a fairly simple application and maybe an essay. Many political leaders offer small scholarships as well, which require brief applications.
