Oklahoma Financial Aid: Grants & Scholarships

Oklahoma offers several scholarships, grants, and work-study programs for students seeking higher education. Your financial aid journey doesn’t stop with FAFSA®. In many cases, you may have to apply for additional aid via individual applications. Below you’ll learn more about how to get Oklahoma state financial aid.

First File FAFSA®

The first step toward any financial aid for college is to apply for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). The FAFSA® qualifies you for federal student grants and loans, as well as some state-based aid options. You can file your FAFSA® with Frank in only minutes and rely on our expert support team to help you through the process.

Apply for Oklahoma Financial Aid

While FAFSA® may help you garner some state aid, there are steps you can take to get some extra gift aid that you don’t have to pay back. This could be scholarships or grants, or in some cases, even work-study programs offered by the university you’re attending. Below you’ll find some great aid options.
