What are some resources and avenues I could look towards for gaining financial support for college at Stanford?
I would like to attend Stanford on account of my being accepted but the parent contribution is becoming an issue and hindering my ability to commit. #stanford #college #college-advice #financial-aid
Congratulations on your acceptance to Stanford! That's a tremendous accomplishment. There are a lot of resources out there to help make college affordable. Student loans, grants, and scholarships are all common forms of financial aid. The first step is probably to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). I linked FAFSA's website below. I would also look into applying for grants and scholarships and also investigate the possibility of work study. I linked a US New & World Report Article that gives a nice overview of understanding what types of aid are out there and the initial steps to apply for it.
I hope this helps! Best of luck!
