OUTSIDE GRANTS AND SCHOLARSHIPS
Many businesses, religious, and civic organizations provide scholarships and grants for post-secondary educational pursuits. This is an area which is often overlooked. Therefore, you should speak to people such as your high school guidance counselor to obtain more information. Another sector to check is local hair salons. You might be able to convince a salon owner to provide you with a scholarship if you agree to work for the salon after you finished your education.
HOME EQUITY LOANS
Many parents elect to take a home equity loan rather than a PLUS Loan due to the tax deduction benefits which come with a home equity loan.
