Adult Scholarships

The first step in getting financial assistance for college is to complete FAFSA (the Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Any adult returning to a public or private higher education institution is eligible for financial aid. No matter how long it has been since you attended school, you can apply for assistance without any cost. While your application is processed, start making your education more affordable by viewing these scholarships and college grants for adults.
