Most online universities offer financial aid, including scholarships. Scholarships are available to a wide range of students, and as a student you can qualify for more than one scholarship.
Like grants, scholarships offer financial assistance without the requirement of repayment. It's a good idea to rsearch the types of scholarships available - many students are unaware of the various scholarships awarded each year to deserving students. Contact your university's financial aid counselor and ask him or her for online bachelors degree scholarship reference material. Next, go to your local library and ask the help desk for the same information. Start applying as soon as you can, preferably several months before enrolling in school. Pay attention to deadlines and be sure to contact a financial aid counselor if you need help filling out any forms.
