Hi, I just graduated from UNCW. I think there are "loans" you can get and if you agree to work in NC for a few years after graduation or if you agree to work in NC rural areas your "loans" are forgiven. I beleive, the loans are called the "Perkins loan" and the "NC Math & Science loan". I also think if you serve in the military after graduation sometimes they will forgive your loans, and of course there is always the reserves-they also help pay college tuition. I found that at UNCW if you received decent grades and were "financially needy", there was money out there to help you: grants, scholarships, loans...
Here is the 1998 student financial aid guide: http://www.ed.gov/prog_info/SFA/Stud...7-8/index.html
Here is a general financial aid site: http://www.finaid.org/
Just remember, there is money out there-it just needs to be found!
