Colleges with Top Grants & Scholarships

There are about 65 colleges and universities that meet the full demonstrated need for their accepted students. This means that if you are accepted to these colleges, you may only have to pay your EFC (determined by your FAFSA application) for each academic year and the college will cover the rest of the cost with grants and scholarships. So if your EFC is 000000, then you pay nothing! You probably have never heard of some of these colleges, but they are all top notch and some are very competitive to get into. This means that you must be a high achieving student to get into these colleges, so do your research to see if you meet the admission requirements and apply! The link to the list of colleges is below.
