Financial Resources for College and Training

Most careers require some type of post-secondary training or education after high school. There are many resources to help finance the cost of training/education.

When should I start learning about college and career training funds?

It is never too soon to start thinking about how you will pay for your college/training costs. By junior year in high school, you should begin to check into the resources available by talking with your high school counselor, colleges or training providers you are considering, local agencies, and organizations.

How can Talent Link help?

Talent Link staff work closely with area colleges and training providers, in addition to programs that support training for youth. Additionally, Career Cruising Network has a section devoted to Financial Aid and Scholarships.
