Private Financial Aid Sources

Financial aid from private resources can be the most elusive of all aid programs.

Available From:

  • Local businesses;
  • Civic groups;
  • Churches;
  • Private benefactors; and
  • National organizations

Where to Look:

  • High school guidance counselors;

  • Write, call, or visit businesses, civic groups, churches, etc.;

  • Public libraries; and

  • The Internet. One great place to start is FinAid!

Recommendations:

  • Utilize all free options from local high school, college, and Internet services first.

  • Exercise caution when utilizing professional help and only after exhausting all other free options. There are many organizations and individuals that provide services for a fee. Unfortunately, some of them are not looking out for your best interests.
