    Exclamation Fill out your Financial Aid forms NOW

    For those of you who are thinking of going to college, fill out the Federal Financial Aid forms as soon as possible. If the Feds are handing money out, reach out & grab your chunk of it!

    Here's an article that could help as well:

    The deadline for 2005-2006 is like June 2006 but if you submit it then, you'll have to front all the costs for that year yourself. I'm pretty sure that they require your financial info well before you get into the school to move things along a lot easier.

    If I remember right, I think you put down several choices as to which school you think you'll be attending.

    I think this is just Federal money meant for US based schools unfortunately. But from the sounds of it, being an American living abroad has to have some pretty cool educational aspects to it as well.

    The first place I'd check for scholarships would be the your counselors whether they're in the high schools or the Financial Aid people at the college you plan on attending.

    Good luck!

    In that case, call them up at 1-800-4-FED-AID and I think they should be able to help you out.

    I looked at the brochure and didn't see anything that would prohibit you from getting any aid unless they require you to a resident of the particular state where the school is located prior to but I doubt it; just because so many people are out-of-state students. I'd like to think that just because you're out of the country I don't see it as a problem.

    Now they do require tax forms from you so I don't know if you've got that or not, but again...call them and see if you can get some cash for your schooling. Good luck!!!

    I'm not sure but I think you have to be an American citizen or a non-resident alien of the USA. And I think this financial aid only applies to American schools so if you're applying to an American based school, I would contact their Financial Aid office and see if you can get this.
