WOIS - Enter Site Key

WOIS provides current information on occupations, educational programs and postsecondary schools in Washington State
Anna Lim's insight:

WOIS allows you to read information about any college and compare multiples at the same time! UW is the cheapest, with $11,307 with Cornell University being the most expensive at $45, 130.  But UW only has Co-Ed dorms whereas Cornell as all types of dorms. On the other hand, Washington State offers a great deal more activities and sports. In addition, Cornell and WSU are in a rural area while Berkeley and UW are in an urban area which may pose a problem either way. Davis is the only college that is in a suburban area. Also, Both the Cali colleges don't have cheerleading if I want to pursue that in college.

Grants and Scholarships | Federal Student Aid

Grants and Scholarships | Federal Student Aid | CE Research Log | Scoop.it
Grants and scholarships are free money to pay for college or career school. Learn about Pell, FSEOG, TEACH, and Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grants.
Anna Lim's insight:

There are other sources of financial aid, such as scholarships and grants. They can also help me pay very expensive tuition, and are not need-based, but merit-based, so if my family need is low, I have a better shot at getting aid from these sources.

BigFuture - Get Ready for College - College Planning, Financial Aid, Educator Resources

BigFuture - Get Ready for College - College Planning, Financial Aid, Educator Resources | CE Research Log | Scoop.it
Choosing a college is a big and exciting decision. Explore your interests and take the time to find a college that will put you on a path to a bright future.
Anna Lim's insight:

This website allows you to search for and apply to scholarships as well as other financial aids. Internships are also posted here, which may be very helpful later down the road! Although, there isn't much availability. I filled out the criteria and I only got around 50 options and most weren't scholarships but loans or internships. It helped me find out more about financial aid and scholarships, but it didn't give me many options on what I can apply to.

About Us | Federal Student Aid

Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Dept of Education, provides grants, loans, and work-study funds to help pay for college or career school.
Anna Lim's insight:

FAFSA provides over $150 billion in every each year to more than 15 million students paying for college or career school! It also tells me that financial aid is based on cost of attendance and so if I went to $40,000 college versus a $20,000, my aid would be higher.

I also filled out a FAFSA Scavenger Hunt, which I submitted already.
