Federal Financial Aid Programs
The Federal government has a myriad of grants, scholarships and loans (i.e. Pell Grants, Work Study, Perkins Loan, etc.) available to qualified students who have financial need.
Students should fill out the FAFSA to be considered for any of these financial opportunities.
Male citizens of the U.S. and male immigrant aliens 18 through 25 years old must be registered with the U.S. Selective Service System to be eligible for federal student loans and grants. Men can register at any post office, or register on–line at www.sss.gov/regist.htm
These programs are awarded exclusively by the financial aid office at the individual UH campuses. Check with the financial aid office where you plan to attend for more information on availability of funds, eligibility, deadlines and required forms.
