Local Financial Aid 

The Government of Guam Student Financial Assistance Programs (SFAP) offer financial assistance through the local government to college students pursuing degrees in locally needed areas of expertise, such as nursing, teaching, social work, and technical fields. The student does not need to pay the aid back or pays it back by working on Guam for a specified period of time.

All Guam financial aid programs require the FAFSA, the SFAP application, and the application for the individual program be submitted. See Step 2 of the Financial Aid Process.
