College is getting pricier and pricier every day, it seems. And financial aid applications can be overwhelming not only for students, but for parents as well.

NextGenVest is a free text message service that can help students get more financial aid for their college education.

The service pairs each student with a "money mentor" to help them through the scholarship process and can even negotiate financial-aid packages.

Students can text "I want help" to the 24/7 hotline at 646-798-1745.
