NEW YORK (PIX11) – After four years in higher education, the average loan debt for U.S. students is $30,000.
Parents and students are making their college decisions now, but there are still ways to get free money toward an education.
Experts with the College Benefits Research Group explain that there are need-based and merit-based scholarships, as well as chances to negotiate more financial aid, to help offset the rising cost of college and keep student loan debt down.
May 1 is the deadline by which decisions must be made so applicants commonly think there isn’t any more money out there as the date approaches, but experts say that isn’t true.
Here are a select few need-based scholarships available in New Jersey:
- Tuition Aid Grant (TAG)
- Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Grant
