Overview

Completely revised with updated descriptions, contact information, websites, and available funds, this guide to financing higher education is the only resource students need to fund their pursuit of knowledge. Balancing detailed explanations with real-life examples and practical resources, the featured topics include how to find and win scholarships, request a reassessment from colleges for more financial aid, maximize assistance from state and federal governments, take advantage of educational tax breaks, and benefit from government-subsidized student loans. Creative strategies, such as starting profitable dorm-room enterprises, trading tuition costs for volunteer service, and canceling debts with loan repayment programs, help students find extra money when more traditional routes are exhausted. The provided tips are designed to aid high school, college, adult, and graduate school students and their parents.
