Advancing your education can be expensive! For many individuals, student loans may be the second largest source of debt in their life after a mortgage for a house.

If you’re the savvy student we think you are, you aren’t trying to totally break the bank to enhance your education.

And luckily for you there are a wide range of ways to lower the cost of a higher education.

  • Attending in-state universities can be surprisingly affordable.
  • Many community college districts offer free tuition to in-district students.
  • The better a school is, the likelier they are to meet 100% of a students demonstrated financial need.
  • Federal grants and student loans are available to those attending accredited colleges and who filled out a FAFSA.

And finally, one of the best ways to lower the cost of higher education: scholarships.

Here at DegreeQuery we have years of experience researching traditional and online education. And financial aid is no different.

We’ve compiled some of the most comprehensive and up-to-date scholarship lists online. And as with all of our education coverage, we’ve focused on the demographics and academic interests that potential (and current) students find most interesting.
