Finding ways to fund your college education can be tough.
It seems like the cost of attendance increases every year and this can be a bit discouraging.
Many people even decide to attend a college that they don’t really want to go to or decide not to go at all, in an attempt to save money.
If you've you got your heart set on going to college, don’t give up.
There are some ways to fund your college education that you may not have considered.
Let’s check some of them out.
1. Federal Financial Aid
One of the first things you should do when trying to find ways to fund your college education is to apply for a Federal Pell Grant.
This is one of the best ways to fund your education because you never have to pay the money you receive back.
The amount of money that you will receive will depend on things like your financial need, how much it costs to attend the college you've selected, and whether you’re a full-time or part-time student.
You can apply online or at the college you plan to attend.
If you are currently in high school, you can also visit the guidance counselor's office for help.
