Lessons in College Financial Aid


Teen members research the different types of financial aid.

During Diplomas to Degrees (d2D), teen members at the Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club learned what it means to be a recipient of financial aid. Most full-time students in college today receive some type of financial aid to help them afford college. However, some students do not know the difference between the varying types of financial aid: scholarships, grants, loans and work study. Teen members had to research each type then conclude which type of aid constitutes a grant versus ones they would have to pay back.

Diplomas to Degrees takes place on Fridays from 5:30pm – 6:00pm.
