Student loan information 
Did you know that cosigning a student loan can be risky business? According to a recent survey, the majority of parents of incoming college students do not understand the risks of cosigning a student loan. This month, we are working to educate parents and students on the risks including the long term financial impact and the emotional consequences.

At The Student Loan Report, we encourage incoming college students to seek financial aid and student loans without cosigners. This month we released a new guide (with videos!) dedicated to helping students and parents find and compare non-cosigned sources of financial aid.

You can find the guide here:
The Kansas Board of Regents is a body consisting of nine members that governs six state universities in the U.S. state of Kansas. In addition to these six universities, it also supervises and coordinates nineteen community colleges, five technical colleges, six technical schools and a municipal university.
This site will give you actionable tips on applying for scholarships and help you realize how accessible scholarships can be.    
This guide explores the various ways students and their families can finance a college education, from well-known avenues such as scholarships and grants to newer strategies that have emerged in the last decade to sources that many students simply forget to tap into.
In an effort to help students afford their higher education, our team at LendEDU recently updated our guide to college scholarships to help students find relevant opportunities specifically for them.

Within this update, we have added our new search tool where students can filter scholarship opportunities based on their grade level, GPA, the scholarship amount, and the requirements of the scholarship.

On top of this new tool, our resource teaches students and families the importance of searching for scholarships when figuring out how to pay for college. Here is the URL:

Note: You can click the link at the top of the page to jump down to the scholarship search tool.

Here are some other points we cover in the guide:
- Different Types of Scholarships Available
- Applying for Scholarships
- Essay Tips
- Letters of Recommendation Tips
- Spotting Scholarship Scams

We have also included YouTube videos from our channel to help make the information a little more digestible and entertaining.
