You can begin the search for scholarship money for college at any time, even during the freshman year.
There are many ways to do the search. One that is free to Villa students and has no commercial advertising is www.TuitionFundingSources.com. Log on as a first time user and select the state where you live and the school you attend. You can then create a username and a password. This service is provided by Pepsi Cola.
You can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at any time but the sooner the better. Just remember to have all the information you need (income tax info for you and your parents is the major item) when you sit down to apply. You need to get a PIN number first. Just go to www.fafsa.ed.gov to get started.
