Higher education can be a very expensive endeavor. Very few students and families have the money to handle the expenses without some type of assistance. Fortunately, LOSFA has been helping students find ways to finance their education since 1962.

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a critical step in the search for federal financial aid, but it is also important to save some money through START and through research scholarships.
