6. United States Air Force Academy

State Aid Programs For Students


There are close to 400 programs worth almost $3 billion dollars in financial aid available through all 50 states. Just because you don't have the money to pay for college doesn't mean your dream of a college degree will never happen. Even if you do have the money, financial assistance from one of these programs could make things a little easier for all concerned.


The advantage of many of these programs is that most people don't even know they exist, so your competition will be less. Each state has different requirements for their various programs, so you may need to do some checking on what specific programs might fit your needs.


Some programs are exclusive to residents of a particular state, whereas others have no limitations. In addition, some programs will award money to a student, and put no limitation on what school the student chooses to attend. In some cases, for teachers or health professionals, a service requirement may exist which says that the student will practice in a particular state after graduation for a certain period of time.


Contact each state below for a listing of available programs.
