Besides federal grants and loans, where can I go to find college financial aid?

Students can receive financial aid from state agencies, individual schools, and a variety of community organizations. Most schools have their own financial aid programs and use your FAFSA results for those, too. Visit for information on state funded programs. Other resources may be found here.

Students at UIS can apply to multiple donor-funded scholarships using our application link: All students who would like to be considered should apply by Feb. 15.
