Student Loan Finance Corporation (SLFC) has awarded five $1, 000 iHELP scholarships and an iPad to South Dakota high school seniors. The scholarships recipients were selected from a random drawing conducted live on the KSFY TV morning news on Friday, April 19.
Student Loan Finance Corporation administers the iHELP loan program for numerous community banks and has 35 years of experience in student loans. This is the third year SLFC has awarded the scholarships.
iHELP is a simple, transparent and low-cost private lending program offered through local community banks to help students achieve their higher education goals. In addition, iHELP provides free resources on U.S. college costs, average salaries by career and location and scholarship links, so students can make informed decisions and reduce their net costs of attending college. The information can be found on the SLFC/iHELP college planning web site, www.iHELPloan.com.
The iHELP Private Student Loan Program is provided through community-minded banks throughout the United States. iHELP and its lending partners are committed to helping students and their families make informed decisions about their plans for higher education, providing current resources on school costs, estimated salaries for various careers, and free access to more than 18, 000 available scholarships, totaling over $7.5 billion in free money.
In addition to the iHELP scholarships, the information helps students and parents compare colleges, research careers and also give a comprehensive list of scholarships from schools across the country.
