Top Financial Aid Schools In The Country

collegemoneyI read Lynn O’Shaugnessy’s College Solution blog on a regular basis (Meaning, I skim over it every now and again and fully read the articles that grab my attention). She is a great writer and pays close attention to what is happening in our industry. Last month she posted an article that cited the top colleges and universities in our nation that meet a student’s financial need fully with scholarships and grants (no loans).

Since that article, some colleges have dropped from this list (I can vaguely remember Williams as being one of them) and others are really challenged to maintain this commitment to their students. My assumption is that you will see more of these colleges and universities slowly introducing student loans into their financial aid packages. But for now, here is the list, as comprised by a research group in Pennsylvania, of the educational organizations that should be in your sights if you are looking to minimize your college expenses and maximize financial aid. Enjoy!
