Minority students have an expansive selection of financial aid available to them, but finding and applying for those opportunities isn’t always easy. Read on to learn how to begin creating your financial aid strategy.
Students of color and other minority groups have long been underrepresented in higher education. In an effort to change that and to increase overall access to postsecondary education, numerous organizations, associations, and companies are dedicated to supporting the academic endeavors of all minority students. Navigating this financial aid landscape, however, can sometimes be overwhelming, particularly for those who may be the first in their family to attend college. To help minority students achieve their goals, AC Online created the following guide on financial aid. Students and their families can explore the different types of financial assistance available; learn where to find and access scholarship money; get tips and recommendations from a financial aid expert; and find a list of various resources for support and additional information on paying for higher education.
