CollegeGrants.org

Details

Students are highly encouraged to seek the assistance of federal, state and local grant programs that offer financial aid. Unlike a student loan, these grants do not have to be repaid and are indicative of an ever-increasing awareness that the future economy – and overall social infrastructure of a nation – depends on the best education opportunities for all young adults.

Description of Services:
No student should ever be denied the opportunity to pursue a degree from a higher education institution. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly difficult for students and their families to pay the exorbitant cost of tuition, room and board, and necessary expenditures.

In 2011 the price of a two-semester or three-quarter college year is rising above $20,000 for private schools, approaching $12,000 annually for public universities and more than $5,000 per year for community colleges and trade schools.

Students are highly encouraged to seek the assistance of federal, state and local grant programs that offer financial aid. Unlike a student loan, these grants do not have to be repaid and are indicative of an ever-increasing awareness that the future economy – and overall social infrastructure of a nation – depends on the best education opportunities for all young adults.

One of the major problems students and their families have with financial aid programs is how to get the process started. The task can seem formidable, but there are plenty of resources available to help in finding out the details of a specific grant opportunity.
