It is difficult and unreliable to depend upon need-based financial aid.   However, there are millions available in scholarships and many do no get many applicants.  Please consider scholarships offered by the schools and their alumni associations.  Below are some sites to search for scholarships.  

Too many students and parents graduate with excessive and needless student loan debt.   Excessive student loans can be an impediment to your financial planning goals.   Avoid them.   Spend the time an energy to get tax free scholarships.   It may take just as much and energy as applying to for student loan.   Come back to this page often as I get tips to more scholarships, I will add them to my page.   

If you have additional resources, please let me know so I can add it to this page.
