  1. Sources of Money
    Federal Work-Study Program. The FWS Program provides jobs to undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help them pay for education-related expenses.
    Military service. The United States Armed Forces offers several programs, some of which pay 100% tuition assistance for college courses taken during off-duty hours. See the TA Program Overview for more information. If you wish to serve in the military before college, you can earn up to $50,000 for college from the Montgomery GI Bill and the Army or Navy College Fund. Or, you could earn you degree first by serving in the Air Force, Army, or Navy Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC).
    Student sponsorships. Let a private benefactor put you through school. These programs are more popular in Europe, but are beginning to catch on in the United States, thanks in part to iempower’s MyRichUncle. A sponsorship is an investment for benefactors, as they typically are entitled to a certain percentage of your post-college income for a fixed number of years.
    Community service. Make the planet a better place and earn tuition money. What could be better? AmeriCorps pays out $4,725; Learn and Serve America and the Peace Corps also pays out tuition assistance awards to students who have completed service. Other programs such as VISTA, Teach for America, and the National Health Service Corps offers loan forgiveness programs for college graduates.
    Tuition payment plan. Sallie Mae can help you find money for tuition. Visit TuitionPay for more information.
    Savings. For risk-averse investors who want to avoid the stock market but still make a little return, the 529 College Savings Plan is the way to go. What makes this plan the best way to save for college is that it isn’t taxed and the money in it is not used to calculate a student’s financial aid eligibility. See the USNews.com article on the 529 savings plan for more information.
    Domestic exchange or study abroad programs. Studying in a different state or a different country for a semester or two can sometimes be your ticket to winning another scholarship. Visit FinAid’s page on domestic and study abroad programs for more information.
    Your state. Contact your state’s higher education agency to see if you’re eligible for any programs that they may offer. See the U.S. Department of Education’s Educational Resource Organizations Directory to find your state.
    Your employer. The company you work for, or even your parents’ employers, may offer some tuition assistance. Don’t be afraid to ask.
    Your grandparents. Have your grandparents open and contribute to a 529 plan. While your parents will be scrutinized by the federal government when determining a financial aid package, any money your grandparents provide to you will not be counted.
    Organizations and professional associations. Once you choose a field of study, find a professional association that serves that area of interest and contact them to see if they offer anything in the way of educational assistance or scholarship contests.
    Your expertise. Try selling your expertise. Whether it be tutoring a certain subject, giving music lessons, helping with resume writing, or fixing other people’s computers, put up some fliers and turn your expertise into a little campus business to make a few extra bucks a month.
