Massachusetts Department of Higher Education
The Mass. Office of Financial Assistance has compiled a list of resources to help students navigate the process of applying for financial aid and paying for college, including a link to Fastweb, a scholarship search program.
External Private Resources
Students may be eligible for a variety of aid programs independent of Cambridge College and the federal/state aid processes. There are many resources available to you. A number of local organizations make money available each year. Many statewide and national organizations and corporations also have funds available for students who meet their criteria.
Note: You must report all private sources of student financial aid to the Cambridge College Financial Aid Office in writing. Outside awards are considered part of your aid package and, in most cases, will be applied first to unmet financial need, then to replace loans and/or work-study.
Finding Outside Scholarships
Your local library
A trip to your local library will find many scholarship books available that contain the addresses of scholarship programs. It requires some work on your part (applications, essays, etc.), but a few hours of your time could yield valuable information and lead to additional funding for your education. Locally, The Higher Education Information Center, located in the basement of the Boston Public Library in Copley Square, has numerous resources available to help you find outside aid, including a computerized database of scholarships.
Remember that all scholarship information is available to you free of charge! Be extremely wary of any organization or company that asks you for a “finder’s fee” or “guarantees” that they can find you aid. The above list is provided to you as a reference tool. It should not be construed as an endorsement by Cambridge College of any of the organizations listed.
