Byrd, --A PubHc-- Service Column Help Available For Students Wanting College Education Within the next few months, a large number of 23,359 students expecting to graduate from West Virginia public and private high schools will be faced with this fateful question: Can my family afford to send me to college? If the answer is "No," the student wishing to go to college will find a surprising number of avenues of financial help available. In fact, on a natural basis, fin- ancial help is available to more than 750,000 students who other- wise could not afford a college education. This help includes the National Defense Student loan program which makes loans up to $1,000 per year for four years to qual- Stying students; 233 various kinds of public and private scholarships T H E ern language. Stuclents seeking MELVIN T. STRIDER CO, degrees in other subjects are un- likely to qualify for Federal some 77,000 loans which colleges will make on their own hook to exceptional students; and about 288,500 "work-your-way -through- college" campus jobs which col- leges and universities are eager to fill. Most of the student loan pro- prams and public, scholarships are based on "need" as well as academic excellence. The Federal loan program has the additional qualification that the course of study to l~e pursued by the stu- dent is essential to national de- fensew ith first priority being given to the student whq plans a teaching career, and with secon dary priorities given to students planning for degrees in science matematics, engineering and mad loans, although they can qualify COLONIAL for other public and private loans and scholarships. While the Federal student loan program does not meet the full annual cost of college for many students, it does take care of the major part of it. Here is how it works: (1) A student can borrow as FUNERAL HOME Charles Town Shepherdstown 35 - Telephones - 162 Ii NORMAN E.

(5) Students who use up the full allowable total loan money and who want to continue their education for a master's degree or a doctor's degree, or who want to study medicine or dentis- ry, do not have to make repay- ments until one year after com- pletion of such study. Interest will not accrue during this per- iod. The terms of this cooperative Federal student loan program should not be construed as being the same for loans which colleges and universities will make to stu- dents out of their own establish- ed loan funds. Each school has its own rules covering such loans. This year, every effort will be made in the Congress to im- prove the Federal student loan program so that many more needy students can be provided for.
