I Am College Bound logo

The goal of the I am College Bound campaign is to provide New Hampshire high school students with the inspiration, information and planning support to pursue higher education goals. The Center for College Planning team especially encourages low-income students, their parents and their mentors to recognize that New Hampshire campuses and the U.S. Department of Education offer strong financial aid programs which enable eligible individuals to access financial assistance in paying for education beyond high school. To inform, engage and grow public awareness about financial aid programs, students are incentivized to share content with friends and peers within their networks through monthly promotions.

I Am College Bound Promo of the Month

Beyond college admission and selection information, the Center for College Planning (CCP) at the NHHEAF is dedicated to providing students and families with much-needed information on the available loan programs and funding options for higher education. If you’re looking for scholarships, EDvestinU, the nonprofit sister agency of NHHEAF and private student lender, offers a monthly scholarship giveaway through which $3,000 is awarded each month!

What's the April I Am College Bound Promo?

Congratulations! You have been accepted to college! Now what?

Once you are accepted to a college, one of the most significant factors in your decision to attend may be how much it will cost for you to attend. It's important to understand that financial aid award packages will differ from college to college based on different resources and the family’s financial need, as determined by each college.

Each year, a college’s financial aid office will extend their specific offer of financial aid, including federal and institutional aid, to you by providing you a financial award letter. This letter may include a variety of different grants, scholarships, loans, or work-study. It should also include the Cost of Attendance for the academic year (if your award letter does not include this very important amount, check the Admissions or Financial Aid pages on the school’s website.). By subtracting the grants and scholarships (free money!) from the Cost of Attendance, and reviewing the loans and work-study offered by each institution, you will know the total financial impact to your family. When reviewing financial aid award letters, it is important to talk with your family about how you will pay for college in general and to create a plan for each of the years you will be in school.

Most colleges will expect to receive a deposit, and your commitment to attend their institution, by May 1st, National Candidate Reply Day.
