With college education costs escalating every year, students and families are embracing all means possible to fund rising tuition fees, and high-income families are no exception.

The article delves into various ways in which students and families can take advantage of financial aid, all while debunking the overarching myth that wealthy families won't qualify.
One of those opportunities is merit-based financial aid, in which James Lewis shares "there are many different types of merit scholarships available for athletes, minorities, and students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs.
