What is Financial Aid?

Financial aid is simply money that is used to help cover your educational expenses at D&E. It comes in two forms: gift and self-help aid. Gift aid is money that does not require repayment. Examples of gift aid include Federal Pell Grants and D&E Merit Scholarships. Self-help aid is aid that is either earned through work or borrowed through student loans that must be repaid. Self-help aid can help you to gain valuable work and financial experience while also helping to cover your educational expenses. Federal Work-Study and Federal Stafford Loans are both examples of self-help aid.
