The annual family income of a candidate is one of the key factors in determining their total eligibility for financial aid. Students whose family income per annum is less than $30,000 will receive a federal aid of $15,969 on average in a year. For the $30,001-$48,000 and $48,001-$75,000 family income brackets, the average aid amount stands at $18,684 and $18,318, respectively. Those with an annual income level of $75,001-$110,000 would receive $17,069, while candidates with more than $110,000 of family income receive an average federal aid of $14,385. Alternatively, the candidates can also avail of monetary benefits like student loans, apart from financial grants and scholarship schemes to pay for their studies. But, they should understand that student loans are borrowed at a certain rate of interest, unlike grants and scholarships. Moreover, the funds received through these loans will have to be repaid within a given timeframe. At Drury University, the percentage of candidates who opt to avail of student loans is around 59%.
