NEW SERVICE HELPS STUDENTS QUALIFY FOR STATE AND FEDERAL STUDENT AID PROGRAMS Every year, millions of eligible students miss out on their share of the 26$ billion dollars available from state and federal stu- dent aid programs either because they don't apply or they do not know how to complete the state and federal students aid applications in a manner that will insure the best chance of receiving and award. To assist families in determining exactly how much money they are eligible for in the form of state, federal, and special campus- based student aid programs, FINANCIAL AID SEARCH SERVICE is now offering a sophisticated computer service that analyzes a student's individual family circumstances and prepares a computer- ized step-by-step outline illustrating what action the student needs to take to be assured of qualifying for his or her share of the$ 26 billion in student aid that is available for the next school year. According to the company's spokesman, Kenneth Irwin, students complete a short background questionnare that asks about their income, expenses, academic abilities and the school they are attend- ing. This information is entered into a computer that analyzes each student's particular circumstances and prepares: a 40- page report, guiding the student through the steps that they need to take to com- plete state and federal student aid applications in a manner that will insure the best chance of receiving an award. Included in the report is a COMPLETE printout of the special campus-based student aid programs available at each school and the steps necessary to apply for each of these programs.
