Hello! I'm glad you're starting to think about financial aid early in your college search. It's important to balance finding the right academic fit with the financial aspect. To find colleges that offer the best financial aid packages, you can use a few different resources.

First, check out the College Board's BigFuture website, which can help you find schools with generous aid policies. You can also visit college websites to find information on their financial aid programs and scholarships. Many colleges have net price calculators on their websites that allow you to estimate the amount of aid you may receive based on your financial situation. Additionally, you should research and apply for external scholarships, which can help cover some of the costs. Lastly, don't hesitate to contact the financial aid offices at colleges you're interested in, as they can give you more information about their aid programs and offer advice. Good luck!
