Financial Aid Information Page
http://www.finaid.org
This NASFAA-sponsored financial aid information site is the "bible" for all financial aid information. It's hard to imagine anything related to financial aid that's not included here, with links ranging from institutions to government to scholarships to scam alerts. The EFC estimator (estimates the family contribution using either federal methodology or typical institution methodology) and access to FastWeb (see below) are also highlights of this site.
Reference Service Press
http://www.rspfunding.com/eureka.html
Reference Service Press (RSP) has been the information provider for our Financial Aid Database for the last decade. We're proud to partner with RSP, the premier provider of financial aid information in the country. Their books provide much more information than we can include in EUREKA.
Student Loan Network
http://www.studentloannetwork.com
From student loan basics to repayment help, learn tips and tricks to help you pay for school.
Financial Aid Search Through the Web (FASTWeb)
http://www.studentservices.com/
To use this free service, a student fills out a detailed profile through a series of online forms. After the forms are complete, FastWeb responds with a list of matching award programs. Saves a student profile and e-mails new sources of merit aid to student's on-line "mailbox." Students can use FastWeb to generate a form letter for requesting applications and further information about an award program, and then print the letter directly from their browser.
College Board Online
http://www.collegeboard.com/paying/
Provides a way for families to calculate their own estimated family contribution. An excellent tool.
