Grants are free money towards a higher education and do not need to be paid back. Federal grants like the Pell Grant and some need-based scholarships use the FAFSA data to determine eligibility. It’s best to apply for grants ASAP as there is limited funding awarded each year and many are awarded based on a first-come first-serve basis. The more free money you get, the less you have to borrow.

Work Study is only available to students who demonstrate financial need. There are only a few Work Study jobs available each year. They are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Work Study provides part-time jobs for students allowing them to earn money to help pay education-related expenses and is usually on the school's campus. The pay and hours vary, but most Work Study jobs work around your class schedule. You can apply for Work Study on your FAFSA application. Always choose Work Study when filling out your FAFSA each year and decide later if you are willing to accept it or not. If you choose not to do Work Study, you will be opted-out of all work-study opportunities and will not be able to change this decision.
