Gain higher education with 'Need A Lift?'

As a young adult, understanding how to search for scholarships and prepare for higher education isn’t always easy. To help with the process, The American Legion launched its 60th edition of “Need a Lift?” — a comprehensive college financial aid guide.

The 152-page handbook, also available on CD-ROM, contains information on federal and state veterans benefits, as well as scholarships for veterans and their dependents, and Legionnaires and their family members. “Need A Lift?” also makes applying for college faster and more enjoyable due to the informative material on how to:

* Apply for financial aid

* Pursue scholarships, grants and loans

* Calculate financial needs

* Review college and university profiles that feature tuition, room and board costs, admission fees and financial aid deadlines

* Find websites and other sources for career opportunities
