Secondly, we know that higher education comes at high costs!
However, we know that there is free financial aid money and loans available for you out there!
The best place and first place to start is with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid aka FAFSA!
Secondly, for all of you that plan of going to college in the state of California, don’t forget to also apply for the Cal Grant as well!!
Actually, the Cal Grant can actually give you more money than FAFSA. However, in order to qualify for the Cal Grant, you must apply for FAFSA as well!
The important thing to remember is that they both have the same deadline, March 2nd! Which is almost here!

We all know the cost of paying for higher education keeps rising and rising.
Unfortunately, there are many API students who need more financial assistance than what is offered through Federal, State and College financial aid. However, one way to help close the gap in paying for college is through scholarships. Of course, the hardest part of receiving scholarships is knowing where to look.
Fortunately, the good folks at the Asian American Studies Program at University of Maryland have compiled a directory scholarships focusing on API students!!
Please click here to view the PDF file which has tons of different scholarships for API students inside!!
Also, don’t forget that The Spot is offering free help with completing Financial Aid forms on a drop in basis every Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00PM-6:00PM till March 2nd! So if you have any questions or just want someone to look over your forms before you submit them, please feel free to stop by!
The Spot will be closed on Monday, February 17th in observation of Presidents Day.
We will reopen the following day, Tuesday February 19th.
