If you're EFC is $1,500, you'll get a chunk load of aid. Since the tuition with room and board is 19,000, you'll most likely get around 17.5k.
what. The main federal grant is the pell grant and that has a max limit of $5,500 and even if you add the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant with its max of $4,000, everything else is basically a loan that you'll have to pay back.
You could try to get the tax credits though. Basically an amount of money is shaved off from your (or your parents') taxes - I'm assuming only the federal income tax but not really sure - so you have more money on hand. (Obama's) American opportunity tax credit has a maximum of $2,500, provided you do 100+ hours of community service (or have already done so, I think); also the Lifetime learning credit has a max of $2,000. There's also the Hope tax credit with a max of $1,500 but you can have only Hope of the Lifetime tax credit. One of these tax credit programs allows you to use the saved money for school supplies - books, computers, etc.
There may still be local scholarships too.

"Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it."
— Mark Twain
“I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately!”
— General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord
