I want to take this time to announce the launch of my latest business venture, Georgia Futures. I have recently started working with a company called LendUp that specializes in student loans. They specialize in helping people get out of debt while at the same time helping them build credit. By connecting individuals with students looking to borrow money, LendUp provides them with the access loan they need to help finance their education. I am currently taking advantage of their services myself and plan on using this opportunity to provide others with the same service. If you would like to receive information about how you can get involved yourself, please email me at
The Georgia Futures Student Access Loan
Georgia student loans offer many advantages over federal student loans.
Students who attend college in Georgia have access to several different types of educational financing options. While some students choose to borrow money from their parents or receive financial aid grants, others find themselves looking at alternative ways to finance their education. These alternatives may include private lenders, federal and state loan programs, and even scholarship funds.
While many people take out personal loans to help them pay for school, there are plenty of other options available to Georgia students. Here’s how they work:
Private Lenders: Many people turn to private lenders to fund their higher education. A private lender may work with students directly or provide services for institutions. Students may receive a low interest rate compared to government-backed lenders. However, borrowers must research potential lenders carefully since not all lenders offer the same terms.
Every year, millions of students apply for federal student loans to assist them with paying for their education. Students usually need to complete FAFSA forms before applying for any federal loans. Those who qualify can get funding based on their financial situation. Interest rates vary depending on the amount borrowed, length of repayment, type of loan, and whether or not borrowers opt for subsidized or unsubsidized loans.
If a borrower does not qualify for federal loans, he or she may still be able to get funding from his or her home state. The majority of states offer students Stafford, Perkins, or PLUS loans that can cover tuition costs. Some states will also offer grant funding for eligible applicants. Like federal loans, these loans generally require borrowers to complete FAFSAs.
Scholarship Programs: Scholarships are another way for Georgia students to finance their education. In fact, thousands of scholarships are offered each year across the United States. Students should search for opportunities online. Often, schools offer their own scholarship websites that allow students to search for scholarships based on criteria like location, field of study, and eligibility requirements. Depending on the scholarship program, students may be able to use the money towards tuition costs or books.
Student loans can be confusing.
Students planning to go to college in Georgia might feel overwhelmed by the variety of options available to them. Fortunately, the Georgia Department of Education offers free information about student loans at no charge. Visit gde.ga.gov/loans/faqs.html for answers to frequently asked questions about different types of loans, including those issued by the federal government. You can also learn about Georgia public service loan forgiveness programs at gde.ga.org/psof/.
Georgia provides financial assistance for students.
Through the Federal Work Study Program (FWS), students enrolled in participating postsecondary educational institutions can earn money while attending classes. At least two hours per week of work time is required, and employers don’t discriminate against applicants based on race, color, sex, handicap status, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, or political affiliation. Check out the website for details.
Going to college here makes sense with Georgia’s strong economy and high quality of life. No matter what type of degree you pursue, you’ll benefit from our state’s diverse industries, thriving communities, and exceptional medical facilities.
