FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION FOR USA & CANADA

 

(Informations about financial aid for Europe are coming soon, for the moment please find information about Erasmus).

Welcome to university economics 101. The first and only rule: Financial need is in the eye of the beholder.

As college costs soar, more middle-class families feel they need help. Colleges, on the other hand, say it isn't easy to gauge a family's true need. Thanks to the growth in "blended" families and new financial tools like flexible home equity credit lines, it's tough to figure out which households are really hard pressed and which ones simply don't want to have to sacrifice a Caribbean vacation. What's more, aid officers argue, asking families to save and borrow for college is reasonable, since education is an investment that pays off with much higher future earnings.
