Last updated on March 21, 2023 by College Financial Aid Advice.
We are a team of parents who started this website in 2011 when researching financial aid for college for our high school seniors. We were disappointed with the lack of good, easy to find information about paying for college. Our passion and persistence led us to a lot of solid information which we decided to share with you - all for free. We do not require you to provide any personal information to access our website.
All of the information has been carefully researched and whenever possible, we provide you the links to the official website, e.g. the official FAFSA website, or corporate scholarship websites. Sometimes the information is not available on those websites, usually because it is seasonal. We provide you the most current information that we can find, which we believe to be reliable but is not guaranteed.
Most financial aid information for one year is fairly reliable for the next year. If you see a scholarship that looks interesting but the application deadline has passed, check back in time for the following year. Sometimes funding cuts mean a grant or scholarship is eliminated, but most will be offered again for the following year.
We hope you enjoy our website. If you would like to contact us, please use the form below.
