Aid From Institutional Sources


Colleges may have funds of their own to supplement governmental assistance. Most money for undergraduates comes from the institutions themselves through grant, scholarship, loan, and work programs. These include:

  • Alumni-sponsored awards.
  • Privately sponsored scholarships.
  • Athletic awards.
  • General institutional funds used for financial aid.

These schools often rely on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine the parents' and student's contribution. Some institutions collect additional data about income and assets. View a partial list of school-specific aid.
