While the federal government is the primary source of educational funding in the U.S., other resources exist. Some other areas to investigate for school funding include the following.
- There are a limited number of international grants and scholarships available through the Global College. Please contact the Global College for more information.
- Religious, Social, and Professional Organizations: If a student is a member of a religious organization such as a church, synagogue, or mosque; a community organization (Rotary Club, Elks, Moose, etc.); or has been a member of a professional organization (APA, ABA, AMA, etc.), they should inquire about the availability of any educational assistance programs and the award criteria.
- Employers: Some companies offer tuition reimbursement for employees. Students are encouraged to consult their employer’s human resources or benefits office to see what programs might be available.
- Online: The most current information about financial aid can be found online. Many websites contain information about federal and alternate financial aid resources, including www.finaid.org and www.fastweb.com, which provide access to scholarship search engines.
