What is EDUrain?

EDUrain is dedicated to helping students fund higher education. As a student run organization, we understand the unique struggles students face and are determined to help wherever they are in their journey.

What is the “File” Module?

Our File module is our FAFSA filing software which simplifies and shortens the FAFSA process from over an hour to just minutes. You simply have to create an account on www.fafsa.gov and provide us with your login. We’ll handle the rest!

Why file through EDUrain instead of FAFSA.gov?

Unfortunately as a government run software, the FAFSA website is clunky and convoluted. We take all the confusion out of filing your applications and help you get aid in minutes instead of hours.

What is the “Find“ Module?

Our Find module is a scholarship search with over 23k scholarships. Fill out our questionnaire and we’ll be able to match you with the relevant scholarships. We’ll currently undergoing extensive testing with a new matching algorithm which will be able to return even better matches (coming end of Summer/Fall 2021)

What is the “Fund” Module?

Our Fund module is a housing platform with a housing search feature for students looking to find housing. You can browse our map to see all the available housing in the area. We currently only support the stl area but will be coming to your campus soon! We’ve also partnered with lenders to offer students a 0% interest gap loan to cover housing costs over the summer months.

How much does EDUrain cost?

All of our features are completely free to use, except for our gap loan which has an origination fee paid to the lender.

How does EDUrain protect user data?

We use a high level encryption to store your personal information. We employ industry standard security measures to protect our site from all forms of attacks.
