Accepting Donations and Volunteers to Help Kids Attend College


Welcome to the World-Wide PUSH Foundation Scholarship Program

Pay For College

Grants and scholarships are kinds of financial aid that you don’t have to pay back. That’s why they’re called gift aid. Scholarships can help you cover college expenses.

Qualifications:
If you are a high school senior or 1st year college student signed up at an accredited 2 year or 4-year college you are eligible to write an essay for an opportunity to win FREE scholarship money toward your school of choice. Enter to win a scholarship by writing an essay about your greatness, your choice of study, why you chose your field & how you plan to better the world as a future leader. Winners will be chosen the first week of May, 2017 & awards will be presented on May 13th, 2017 at Run for College.

Understanding College Costs
A shared myth about college is that it’s too expensive. But once students realize what college really costs, they often determine that higher education is within their reach.

College Costs Vary
The major part of college costs is tuition. Tuition is the price you pay for classes. Tuition and fees vary from college to college. Such as 2-year college versus a 4-year college. Also, keep in mind Out-of-State tuition fees if you plan to attend a college away from home.

Other college costs include room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses. There are ways to save money & manage these expenses. For example, scholarships, financial aid, work study programs & student loans, probably in that order.

How to Complete the FAFSA

To apply for most financial aid — including federal and state student grants, work-study, and loans — you’ll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is available online at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. If you need a paper copy, you can download a PDF at www.studentaid.ed.gov/PDFfafsa or call 800-4-FED-AID (433-3243).

You can complete, submit and track your application online. This is the easiest way to apply for federal aid. The online program even checks your data before it is transmitted to the processing center, so there's less chance of making an error.

If you have questions about the application, FAFSA on the Web or federal financial aid for students in general, call:

Federal Student Aid Information Center (FSAIC)
800-4-FED-AID (433-3243) / TTY 800-730-8913
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to midnight Eastern Time
