Government Grants for Students

For many students today, borrowing and acquiring debt are assumed parts of going to college.  Instead of automatically applying for loans, students should investigate all other options of funding their education.  Grants are an excellent way of paying for college because they are considered need-based gifts and usually do not require repayment, unlike student loans.  In addition to private sources, like clubs and specific schools, the US government also issues grants.

Bridging The Gap: Grad Plus Loan

If you’re researching a Grad PLUS Loan (Graduate Student PLUS Loan), chances are you know the major change that occurred recently: students themselves are now eligible for the loan which previously was available only to parents of undergraduate students.

Women in Engineering Scholarships

As a recent engineering graduate myself and with a sister who took engineering I appreciate how hard it can be for women in engineering and the benefits to society of having a larger gender split of engineering graduates. My sister is a strong believer in the benefits of having women in engineering and she also puts a lot of effort encouraging other women to take engineering. She put together an impressive resource with all the grants she could find that would help her attend college and offered to share it here for other women considering engineering…. [table id=57 /] Have you ever seen the ad’s online promoting “Women in Engineering Grants” or “Single Parents school grants” and wondered are these real?

Federal Pell Grant

A Federal Pell Grant is what every incoming student wants: a student loan that never has to be repaid. Gift loans are the best way to pay for college. However, Pell Grants are not as beneficial as a scholarship that pays tuition outright. A Pell Grant will only be $4,000–obviously a hefty sum, but it still might fall short of all college expenses. For this reason, Pell Grants are often combined with other types of financial aid opportunities. […]
