College Financial Aid is intended to help students pay education-related expenses (tuition, room and board, transportation, books, and other fees) while attending college.  Click here for a brief financial aid overview.

Need-based Aid can come in the form of grants (gift money) or loans (money that needs to be paid back).  In order to receive this type of financial aid students and families complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or the FAFSA, beginning in the student’s senior year of high school.

Merit Aid is awarded to students who have an exemplary academic record, including GPA and standardized test scores.  The student’s chosen college or institution usually distributes this grant money.

Scholarships are a form of grant, or gift aid and are available at both the high school and college levels.  Bishop Manogue Catholic High School updates an extensive scholarship database in Family Connection.
