Financial aid is money that is given, earned, or lent to help students pay for their education. Federal government programs provide approximately 70% of the financial aid granted nationwide. Though the term “financial aid” is frequently used to describe any funds a student obtains to attend college, it is important to recognize different types of financial aid. Keeping it as simple as possible and ignoring the few exceptions, there are four major categories of financial aid: Grants, Loans, Workstudy, and Scholarships.
