Did you know that there is a difference between a scholarship and a grant, and that difference can affect the money you receive from your chosen school? Today, the Money JAR team talks with Beatrice Schultz of Westface College Planning to discuss an important topic on every college bound student and parents’ mind: how to pay for college. We tackle strategies, available grants and some common misconceptions about the college planning experience. There are a lot of great resources, so please check out the footnotes below for links to the resources discussed in this episode!
