Financial Aid Links

 

The Financial Aid office has created this page to assist you in locating links for financial aid literacy materials and for private scholarships search ideas.  Many private scholarships are offered each year by corporate, professional, trade, government, civic, religious, social and fraternal organizations ranging from small honorariums to thousands of dollars. Brenau University does not guarantee the availability or fairness of administration of these websites. Students pursue them at their own risk. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the necessary materials, complete applications, and submit them directly to the sponsoring organization for review and fund distribution. The Financial Aid Office recommends that you avoid websites that require you to pay a fee, attend a seminar, or claims a guarantee.
