Financial aid is an imperative part of higher education, but I think it remains one of the most overlooked and overhyped elements in the minds of high schoolers. Financial information is hard to access for some students; these and other barriers make filling out aid applications quite difficult.
This infographic is designed to melt away the fuzziness of bureaucracy and send the message directly: You can get free money. Here’s how.
In addition, despite their differences, I still get these applications mixed up. I hope this infographic can clarify each program’s characteristics to prevent other students from jumping through as many hoops as I did.
You’ve got this!
