FAFSA Resource Center: Types of Aid
What types of aid are there?
Financial aid is money to help pay for college or career school. Aid can come from:
- the U.S. federal government,
- the state where you live,
- the college you attend, or
- a nonprofit or private organization.
In addition to financial aid, don’t forget to think about how to lower your costs when you go to college.
