Higher Education

Paying for Education

Kudos to you for furthering your education. Paying for school can be tough though, so here are a few things that can help.

Scholarships & Grants

  • Filing for FAFSA - complete each year after you (or your parents) complete taxes
  • MNFIC Scholarships – available at US Federal in the fall; applications due early February the following year
  • Other scholarships – check with local clubs and businesses for scholarships they may offer. You can also ask career services at your current school if they know of any available that you may qualify for.
