Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Students who plan to get financial aid through the federal government should apply on this website immediately after their parent/guardian receives their tax return.
Parents and students can apply for a PIN number which can be used as electronic signature on FAFSA, for corrections, promissory notes, and can be used to access student data on various websites.
Online registration with the selective service system.

These are free money! Look under scholarship tab for different websites. Local scholarships are currently available right outside of my office in the HS Media Center as well as a scholarship binder with lots of national and state-wide scholarship opportunities.
