Government Grants for College

Paying for college is a bit of a puzzle. You have to know what to expect before you dive into this process. Scholarships are great sources to use because they offer merit-based funding to students.

Loans have to be paid back but they can also be helpful. However, what you may not know is that one of the best forms of funding for college are grants. These funds are generally need-based and do not have to be paid back. Thus, if you are looking for a way to make your dreams come true, you need to search for grants.

There are many types of grants available today. There are those that are offered by non-profits around the world and those that are given out by famous companies and organizations.

One of the best and most reliable grants to invest in is government sources. These grants are reliable ways to fund college. After all, the government wants its citizens to succeed. If you succeed, then you will be that much more likely to give back to the country and will stimulate the economy and give back in other ways.

The following are just some of the many things to know when it comes to finding, qualifying for, and applying for government grants for college.

Federal and State

You can find two main types of government grants: federal and state options. The federal grants offerings are fairly straightforward since they’ve been around for quite some time. The federal government puts aside a certain amount of money each year for specific programs to help them succeed.

More and more children are earning high school diplomas and are looking to attend college. The government knows this and has funds to help make this a reality.

Since 1972, the federal Pell Grant has helped low-income students attend school. This program is based on the premise that low-income families may not be able to save for their children to attend school. Thus, the grant is supposed to fill this gap in. The amount of the Pell Grant changes depending on the available funds and budget of the federal government.

Another great federal grant to consider is the Academic Competitiveness (AC) Grant. This funding is available to freshman and sophomores who have stellar academic track records and have shown talent and commitment to leadership and community service endeavors. To qualify for the AC Grant, students must also meet the income requirements of the Pell Grant.

Another great federal grant is the National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant (SMART Grant). This grant is awarded to college juniors and seniors who plan to study computer science, engineering, math, or the sciences. Interested parties must also qualify for the income requirements of the Pell Grant.

Different states will offer different types of grants. Thus, you need to be sure to read up on what your state has to offer you. For example, Michigan has grants in place to help non-traditional adult students as well as the academically gifted and low-income students. To qualify for such funds, you will need to be a legal resident of the state and be able to provide proof of this.

Ethnicity and Race Matter

When looking for state funds, know that your ethnicity and race do in fact matter. Many groups have been discriminated against in the past and have not had the same advantages of other groups. Thus, there may be state programs directed towards helping such groups as African Americans and Native Americans receive the funding they need to attend college.

Service in Exchange for Funds

There are a number of states that are trying to recruit certain types of professionals. Thus, you may be able to secure government grants for college if you are willing to exchange service for funding. For example, there are states that are trying to recruit the best and brightest teachers. Thus, they may be more willing to pay for students to attend college if they are willing to then commit a certain amount of time teaching in the state. This is a way to improve the state’s education system while also providing government grants for college to in-need students. If you want such funding, take the time to consider whether or not you are willing to make this sort of commitment.

Get Your Financial Documents in Order

Once you having found some government grants for college that you want to apply for, it is time to dig in and really gather together all of your financial documents. You will need to prove that you are in fact in need of assistance. This may mean that you also need to gather your parents’ or legal guardian’s tax returns and financial documents. Having this information on hand will ensure that your application is complete.

Be Aware of Deadlines

Federal and state governments do not care if your car breaks down or if there is an illness in the family. Thus, if you want to secure government grants for college, you need to plan ahead and start working on the applications as early as possible. Try to submit your work well before the deadlines so that emergencies and accidents do not derail you. The governments receive thousands of applications: They will not be able to grant exceptions for you if something goes wrong. Really, working ahead of time and staying on top of deadlines will allow you to secure your chances.

Do Your Research

The best way to secure solid government grants for college is to know what it is required or needed for all of the applications. This means that you need to read up on the requirements and on the necessary documents that need to be included. If you have questions about what the requirements mean, talk to your school’s counselor to see if they can help guide you through this process. Don’t think that you can send in an essay and a transcript and call it a day. Extensive documentation is a major piece of government grants. Thus, you want to be sure to completely understand the applications before you dive in and send them in.

Explain Yourself

When you fill out grant applications, you need to really think about why you want to attend college. Take the time to make yourself memorable. This means being clear in any and all documents sent to colleges and organizations. Have a love done look over any and all application materials you may send out. You want to ensure it is error free so that you present the best possible image of yourself.

The Colleges Will Do a Lot of the Work

Often, you will not have to directly apply to government grants for college, especially in regards to the federal government. When you get your potential financial aid packages from colleges, you may find that the Pell Grant is already listed. However, if it is not, be sure to call up the college and see if you can work something out. State grants may require that you send in applications. It all depends on how the governments are running their grant programs and how much work the college admissions and financial aid office is willing to do. Thus, be sure to go through your financial aid package with a fine tooth comb to ensure you know whether you have been approved for such funding opportunities.

There are government grants for college if you take the time to look for them. You may not qualify for all of the programs but every bit does count. Do your research and mark your calendar so that you can hunt down funding for school.

    I am a woman in her early 40’s that has had a very disadvanted life and due to being a ward of the state as a juvinille, I never received a proper education, yet was fortunate for a GED. I have struggled for years because of past legal problems when it comes to becoming employed. I have struggled for many years, and want nothing more than to find a career, which I have chosen. I have just enrolled in a medical assistant program, whcih I still may be denied of as I was my first choice of criminal justice, due to my past problems. I have applied for pell and subsidized grants and even student loans, but still have a remaining balance. I have no job, no home… I live in a machine shop that is a business, and no credit. I need to know if there are any grants out there to help someone who just wants a better life and to get away from having no life and just wants a chance to achieve that???? Please refer me to anything or any direction that can help. I am desperate!

  46. David B. Thomas Says:

    I am 41 year old. I am struggling to transfer from community college to a university. But these days, times are tough. My job would not pay me enough so that I can go back to college. Even if were to go back to school I would end up at the same community college facility. I would apply for Federal Student Aid but they would reject because I had taken so many classes these past few years. I am trying to major in either business or commercial art. Is there any kind of scholarship that can help me to go back to school without all the hassle?

  48. Darah Says:

    I was accepted ED to AMerican University for Fall 2012. My EFC is 00017. ($17) I received $19500 in grant and 5500 Federal Loans. The balance remaining is $23000. My mother cannot get approved for a loan. I appealed for a merit scholarship but unfortunately was turned down. My GPA is 3.8 -4.1 weighted. My older sister graduated from American and was a recipient of an Academic Scholarship as well as an Athletic Scholarship. Ever since I stepped foot on the campus I knew it was for me. I need advice on how to make this happen. I have been accepted in to the International School of Service. I plan to double major in International Relations and Business.

Have a great day!

  49. Scott Misamore Says:

    I am currently attending Bluffton University and still have money that I have to pay to be able to continue going here. My dad got laid off last October so I cannot get a loan so unless I pay this money off I will probably have to take time off and make money. I am a junior studying Criminal Justice so going away for a semester or so would really hurt. I really need a grant to be able to continue studying here and finish my degree.

    Thanks you for at least reading this,
    Scott

Any assistance that is available will be greatly appreciated.

  53. Chelsea Qualls Says:

    Hello! My name is Chelsea Qualls, and I graduated from Cabot High School in May of 2011. Cabot is a small town located in Arkansas; however, I moved on to a little bit of a better town called Sherwood. I had a goal for the four years I was in High School to attend a College that I knew would further my education. University of Phoenix found me. I am getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and Web Design. I could not be happier than my choice in this institution. There is a slight backslide though, which happens to be the money. There are several thousands of students that struggle with money to go to College, and I am one of them. The financial aid through the institution helped me out a lot, but I am having to take out $4,000 some odd dollars a year for three to four years for furthering my education. I find this difficult for myself because I already had a hard time making myself finish High School due to lots of financial situations, and I am just hoping that I stick through this. I have a 4.0 grade point average, and I attend school regularly. I have not missed a class, I keep up with all my work, and participate in discussions. My first class, I passed with a 96.4%, and I am currently in my second class. I hope that some where out there, I can just find a little extra money to help go towards school so I can stop stressing out and make my dreams go the extra mile that I have always wanted to make them go. Thank you for your time.

  58. Katie Pasker Says:

    Hi, my name is Katie Pasker. I am 22 years old, and have been out of school since 2008. I am currently been trying to enroll at Full Sail University online for the last year or so. I was done with the enrollment, and was about to start class, but I ran into a problem. I needed a loan and a co-signer, my parents both said no they are not going to help me. I couldn’t ask my grandparents or anyone else in my family, because I couldn’t bare if I slipped up and something happened to their credit. And I really wanted my parents to step up and help me out, but I just got slapped in the face. I really want to go back to school. Learning new things is what I love to do. College is my next step in life so I can get the education and the knowledge that I need to success in life. I would gladly appreciate any help that I could get. Thank you for the taking the time to read this.

    Thank you,
    Katie.

    Hello my name is Alisha and I am a graduate student at Syracuse University. I was on a deferred payment plan and I thought I was able to get a loan for the rest of the money that I owe.

  61. Corrinna Corrallo Says:

    I am a sophomore Industrial Design major at the Rochester Institute of Technology. RIT is a great school and I love it so much. I also love my major and there are few schools that offer such a quality education for Industrial design. I switched into the major this year from graphic design, also at RIT. Due to this decision, I have added an extra year onto my college education.I feel strongly that it was worth it to peruse my passion and hopefully have a bright and happy future. Right now paying for that dream is becoming increasingly difficult .Although RIT is amazing , it is also an extremely expensive school. I get a miniscule amount of federal and school aid each year, however my parents do not help me pay for college. I am on my own and I do not qualify for any additional loans myself. The most important thing to me is to graduate college to be successful. My dream is to graduate and use my degree as an industrial designer to aid the daily lives of developing nations through sanitation design as well as incorporate sustainable design principles in my work. I am so passionate about my work and it is unbearable to think what would happen if I could not further my education because of inability to pay. I do not want anything else but to be able to pay for school and anything would help. Thank you so much for reading this.

    Hi, my name is Tyler. I have gotten accepted into Point Park University for their dance program. I have worked my butt off my whole life to train in dance to get myself to this point and now I have gotten into one of the most prestigious programs in the country. It is about $30,000 per year. My father shows no interest in supporting me in the arts. Unfortunately he hasn’t since I began training, and my mother has be left with too much debt to manage. I would be devastated if I were not given the opportunity to go to the program. I want to be an international role model in dance. I feel completely confident Point Park University is the right program for me. Thank you so much!

  90. Jeremy Plott Says:

    Hello! My name is Jeremy Plott.

    I am a student at Northern Kentucky University and have just completed my freshman year. I am studying music composition with a minor in honors/harp performance (and I’m learning piano as well). Currently, we have enough in my college fund to pay for one more year, but after that, we are not sure how to pay for junior and senior years.

    Last year, I obtained a 3.77 GPA, made the Dean’s List, and I will most likely be tutoring other students starting next semester (even though it doesn’t pay much every little bit counts). I can and will succeed as long as our family can find a way to afford to send me to school.

    Posting this feels like a long shot, but I suppose that it is worth a try. College has been the greatest phase of my life so far and I’m really looking forward to going back and continuing my education. It would be magnificent if we could receive any sort of financial assistance, but either way, thank you for your time.

    Take care and have a nice day,

    Jeremy

Already has out one loan and now to pay this is killing him. Any suggestions?

  106. Tiphinnie Brown Says:

    Hi… I attended the George Washington University from 2008 to 2010 and had to leave because I lost a scholarship due to my grades. I am currently paying back the University, because I did not know starting the semester that I had lost the scholarship. It started at 15,000+, and is not ~11,000. I have been placed on a payment plan and have been paying it faithfully for a year and a half. I am eager to get back into school and finish my education closer to home, but GW will not release my transcript until I finish paying them. I am just wondering if it is possible to recieve a grant to pay the school off without being enrolled in an institution at the time.

  107. Kayla Robyn Keemer Says:

    My name is Kayla Keemer. I am coming to you today in regards to asking for help. I have spent my whole life dedicated to studies and maintaining good grades in hopes that I would get into a good college and let my dreams become my reality. Last year, I spent my first year away at school. I was lucky enough to be enrolled in the college of my dreams, The Pennsylvania State University, and I loved every minute of being up there. I was in love with the atmosphere and the prestige of the school. Like many others, I’m sure you have heard of the recent announcement of the scandal between Jerry Sandusky and the university. Unfortunately with that scandal there was a reduction in funds across the board. With this reduction in funds, I was not able to get help from the university or from banks. I had tried to take out loan after loan from every bank imaginable. I hate to see that everything I have worked for has been put to an end. We live in a country that others look to for the fulfillment of their dreams and yet so many of the people that live here already can’t even accomplish theirs. My main goal is to become a teacher, which has been my goal since childhood. In preparation for what I thought would be my fall semester I went back to my high school, where I observed teachers from behind the scenes, for over 80 hours. I had a chance to work with some of these students. It saddened me to see that so many teachers didn’t care that more than half of their students were failing; they were just simply looking for that next pay check to come in. Part of my goal as an aspiring teacher is to teach others beyond a textbook and show them their true potential, making the statement “the word is yours” true. How can I do that when my dreams are struggling to happen? I have filled out scholarship application after scholarship application with the same unfortunate answer of, “thank you for your interest in, whatever the organization was, but you are not a winner this time. Please apply back for another chance.” Our president has said that he has given over 3 trillion dollars back to the education system, yet it is still so difficult for a twenty year old to get the funds needed to continue her education. I ask for your help in making my goals attainable, in any way, shape, or form. Help me to become something more so that I can help others do the same.

  116. Leslie Says:

    I am graduating from college in May and have been accepted into Boston University for the fall to do a Master of Music in Vocal Performance. I was one of four selected into the studio I wanted. This is an amazing opportunity. My father lost his job in February so now I am going to have to pay tuition, cost of living, etc. on my own. I am not opposed to student loans but I cannot get enough to cover everything. I really need to do this for my career and really want to do it. However, I need to find the money to help with cost of living/ start up costs such as deposits, etc.
    Thank you,
    Leslie O.

  118. Craig K. Says:

    I have never in my life asked for help for anything significant. I have always been independent and self-reliant. However, I am out of work. I have been laid off twice in as many years. I am constantly overlooked for jobs for which I can do the work simply because I don’t have that 4 year degree. Sounds like a good reason to go back to school. I’m enrolled and will be attending with laser-like focus and intensity, determined to fulfill a dream, and make more of myself than I had ever previously thought I could. But I need something I have never really asked for; help. I can’t attend class full time, work part time (assuming I find a job), and still pay for all of my living expenses. Any assistance – informational or financial – would be most appreciated.

  141. Belinda Johnson Says:

    Hello,
    I am in need of assistance to finish my Bachelor’s Degree. I recently lost my husband who was ex-military and a Methodist minister. I do not have the money($5000) for the books & classes that I need to take in order to complete my education. I am in sincere dire need since monies have to be paid to hold a seat for me very soon. I have never asked for anything. I am not asking for a handout, but a hand up. I have always tried to be a proud and self sufficent person. I don’t have anyone to turn to except you.

    I am a teacher assistant (of 23 yrs)& have helped my students get scholarship monies for many years, but I can’t seem to be able to find any for myself. Can you please help me in my plight? I would be eternally grateful for anything that you can do, even if it’s putting me on the right path.

    Sincere thanks,

    Belinda Johnson

  144. Porsha Harrison Says:

    Hello everyone, my name is Porsha Harrison and I’m currently a high school senior who lives in Houston, Texas and attends Eisenhower Senior High School. I plan to attend Sam Houston State University in the Fall of 2014 to study in criminal justice or veterinary medicine. I’m looking high and low to get as many grants and scholarships as possible. I live in a low income home with my mother and little sister and I’m trying everything in my power to get as much free money I can to help my mother out so that she doesn’t have to stress about paying for my college tuition which is estimated to be about $18,000 a year. So if I could get the money I need or even a little help that would be a blessing and it would surely help me achieve my life and long term goals I long for to be successful I life but better yet make difference in the world we live in.
