Types of Aid

Financial aid is provided to help students pay for or supplement payment of educational expenses. Financial aid is available in the form of grants, loans and scholarships. Students commonly use a combination of these resources to pay for college.

Scholarships

A scholarship is a financial aid award that does not need to be repaid. Scholarships are a form of merit-based aid, meaning they are offered based on merit or achievement in a specific area.

Grants

A grant is a financial aid award that does not need to be repaid. Grants are a form of need-based aid, meaning they are distributed based on financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Loans

A loan is a financial aid award that must be repaid with interest. Loans are a form of need-based aid, meaning they are offered based on financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).


The best place to start to determine what combinations of resources are best for your circumstance is the Florida Southern College, Financial Aid Office. Our Financial Aid staff will be happy to tell you about what student aid is currently available from the State of Florida, the Federal Government and the school and help you locate other resources.
