Merit Max

Believe it or not, 95% of scholarships are given by the colleges themselves.  But which ones will give your child the most free money?  That’s where Merit Max can help.

Merit Max is a unique scholarship and college cost calculator that includes your Expected Family Contribution or EFC, your child’s grades, and personal preferences (majors, size and location, and type of college) to give you a list of colleges that will offer the largest scholarships.  That’s what scholarships and grants really are: TUITION DISCOUNTS.

Even if your student doesn’t want to go to that college, you can use the offers to leverage the most in free money scholarships and grants from the colleges your child has their heart set on.

After all, most people don’t walk into a car showroom without first shopping around and saying, “I’ll take that one!” Instead, they get a few offers first and then use them to get a better price on the car they want most.

Today, it’s not enough just to save for college. Financial Aid Now will show you how to save ON the cost of college.

By subscribing to Financial Aid Now you are saying, “Show me the money”!

With college costs as high as they are you need more than just average. You’re going to want to know where the rest of the free money you deserve is going to come from.
