All things FAFSA: Federal Student Aid site

Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education, ensures that all eligible individuals can benefit from federally funded financial assistance for education beyond high school. We consistently champion the promise of post-secondary education to all Americans —and its value to our society.

Federal Student Aid plays a central and essential role in supporting post-secondary education by providing money for college to eligible students and families. We partner with post-secondary schools, financial institutions and others to deliver services that help students and families who are paying for college.

Today, Federal Student Aid performs a range of critical functions that include, among others:

  • Educating students and families on the process of obtaining aid;
  • Processing millions of student financial aid applications each year;
  • Disbursing billions of dollars in aid funds to students through schools;
  • Enforcing financial aid rules and regulations;
  • Servicing millions of student loan accounts, and securing repayment from borrowers who have defaulted on their loans; and
  • Operating information technology systems and tools that manage billions in student aid dollars.

MeritAid

"Merit Aid" is the general term for grants, scholarships and discounts that a college awards to an admitted student without regard to financial need. 

Merit aid may be based on...

  • academics 
  • athletic achievements
  • special talents (such as music)
  • where the student lives
  • and other demographic characteristics
