The good news: No matter what your financial circumstances are, you CAN afford college.

The federal government alone provides more than $80 billion in financial aid each year. Plus, the DC government provides much more. And there are hundreds of private scholarships available to all kinds of students:

  • Low income;
  • First in their family to attend college;
  • Great athletes;
  • Talented musicians; and
  • Even special money for kids who are left-handed!


The four main types of financial aid are:

  • Grants: Financial aid that does not need to be paid back.
  • Scholarships: Financial aid that does not need to be paid back, usually based on academic or extracurricular achievement. (See the scholarships for DC students.)
  • Loans: Borrowed money that must be paid back.
  • Work-study: Part-time employment to help pay for college expenses.
