The process of applying for financial aid is an important one for all students to understand. There are many different kinds of aid—some examples are: merit- based grants, need-based grants, loans, and work study. Different colleges have different requirements for those applying for aid. There are numerous other sources of help for those who need it. The College Counseling Office sponsors Financial Aid Nights when the basics of the process are explained, and families are encouraged to attend. In addition, the Finance Authority of Maine occasionally sponsors a number of regional meetings during the year that helps explain the process and answer questions.
