Danny Bailey, financial aid counselor and scholarship coordinator with Eastern Oregon University joins the Morning Buzz to talk about the many resources available for students in need of financial assistance.

We discuss the most important aspects of financial aid, including FAFSA (Free Application For Student Aid) and the Data Retrieval Tool, along with how assistance to utilize and complete these resources, are available from financial aid counselors.

Grant money and scholarships are a big help in allowing the necessary funding for extending education, but the opportunities can sometimes be limited. Student loans are also another avenue to research and find a way to cover educational costs. Financial aid counselors at EOU can assist with finding the optimal plan for each individual student.
