Is there any way to get more funds other than scholarship provided by the university,as it has provided 66%?

1--loans
2--work study (you get paid minimum wage/no more than 20 hrs a week/finds a way to pay your tuition)
3--get a job
4--join the military: coast guard, navy, army etc and you get in shape

CONGRATS! YOU SPELLED SCHOLARSHIP RIGHT :)

you should fill out the financial aid form on the web, it will give you all kinds of different resources and tell you if you are elligible for government aide. Even a little bit will help.

www.fafsa.ed.gov

and good luck with college!

yes, apply for those not offered by the university to pick up the remaining tab for college.

There are government loans & grants, and then there are private loans & scholarships.

try to aim for grants/scholarships more... they are not to be paid back. its confusing sometimes, but just keep applying. Scholarships usually have a 1 or 2 page application, and require an essay. Take your time with the essay, so yours stands out.

every big (and small) company you see (manufacturer, orgs, corps and groups also) all have grants and scholarships they hand out like candy. Walmart, Kmart, Target, Coke, computer companies etc etc etc

here are some links with a HUGE list of what is available. some you will need to copy and paste into a new window. also, fastweb (take the time to fill it in) will search databases and get back to you with a list of scholarships you qualify for.

Also contact all mens, womens associations in your state, they almost always have grants & scholarships. What ever field you are going into, contact the orgs, associations etc for them; Also check with professional organizations related to your career interests, such as the American Bar Association or the American Medical Association. they also always have scholarships. Research and dig, call then write. Its all worth it.

OVER apply; it doesnt hurt to have too many, and the extra funds can help with housing.
