Student Grants for Adults

Finding a lucrative position after being let go from a previous career can be difficult. Many older adults in the U.S. find themselves struggling to compete for jobs passed up for positions. These jobs are instead being filled with younger, college-educated people.

Prospective employers tend to look at college level education that has been completed by the applicant. While older people may have more hands-on experience than their younger counterparts, they are at a disadvantage if they lack a collegiate degree.

If this happens, maybe it’s time to ask yourself. “Is it time to go back to school?”

Happy young hard working professionals

Why go to college?

Despite the myth that suggests otherwise, college educated people tend to find more lucrative jobs and positions. College graduates dominate the lists of the world’s most successful people.

The average college-educated person can make on average a million dollars more in their lifetime than a person who doesn’t. Even those that do find new jobs often become underemployed. In this market, college and trade school graduates have a better chance at finding gainful employment.

But I haven’t been to school in years!

A common issue preventing older adults who contemplate going back to school is the fear of failure. Many adults are hindered by their own aversion to risk. You might not nearly be as computer literate as young people are. The omnipresence of tech might intimidate you.

Fortunately, these jitters can be allayed. You can learn the ropes of computers and other specialist skills at classes held at your local library or unemployment office. These classes are often easy and come at little cost to you. While learning the essential skills for modern computing is one thing, the skills you learn from going back to school are far more invaluable.

What are my options

Depending on what you want to study, you often have the option of taking online classes you can complete at home. Online college classes provide much-needed flexibility, especially if you have hectic personal schedules. You save a lot of time by not traveling to the classroom to finish your classes.

Online classes aren’t for everyone, though. You might like the ability to learn from home. On the other hand, you might be the type of person who learns better in a classroom environment.

How do I apply for college or trade school?

The application process varies between schools. Among the best ways to learn about enrollment processes is to contact the admissions department and ask.

Many students, regardless of age, can find this process overwhelming overwhelming. However, each college or trade school employs trained professionals to guide the you through the application process step-by-step.

Do your research on the various schools in your area. Each school offers different programs. Choose the school that provides the field of training and education you want to pursue and how much education you would need to meet your goals.

What about the costs?

Tuition should also be a factor when deciding on a particular school. Community colleges have gained a good reputation for providing quality education at affordable prices. A good portion of technical trade schools may also have transferable class credits that can be applied to other college institutions. This can be convenient if you want to pursue advanced degrees later on.

However, this also requires a little forward planning. Not all trade school or community college class credits are transferable. Make sure that the classes you take are transferable if you want to transfer later. A college level student adviser can assist you in ensuring your credits will, indeed, be transferable to a traditional college.

How can I afford college?

Student thinking about something

Besides trying to fit college classes into their busy lives, adults looking to further their education often wonder how they can pay for it. Luckily, there are many options at their disposal when it comes to paying for your education costs.

Federal Grants

Federal grants are among the most easily obtainable forms of assistance available for college students of all ages and backgrounds. To qualify, you must first fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before being considered for federal aid. The FAFSA form will ask you questions on the following items to determine your eligibility for Federal aid:

  • Income
  • Dependents
  • Schools you are enrolled in

You can complete the form by hand on paper or accomplish it online.

Be sure to check the deadlines concerning when the FAFSA can be filled out. Students who miss the deadlines may not qualify for federal student aid.

Some of the most common federal grants are as follows:

  • Federal Pell Grant: Most students in the United States qualify for this grant. Eligible students can receive up to $5,550 when enrolled in college full time. Part time students might see lower awards, however. The government considers many factors when determining the amount of federal aid you qualify for. In addition, you must also meet certain academic standards in areas like grades and attendance to qualify for further financial aid disbursements.
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant: This grant is offered to students who have demonstrated the need for additional aid after exhausting all other options (e.g. student loans, scholarships, and other federal grants). To qualify, you must prove that the costs of obtaining their education are greater than you ability to pay.
  • TEACH Grant: If you want to be a teacher, you can qualify for extra aid through the federal government. This award can provide you with up to $4,000 dollars a year in financial assistance. Certain conditions may apply, including specific course enrollment requirements and belonging must be within the 75th percentile on college admissions tests. Students who fail to comply with these requirements will be required to pay back the grant money.

In addition, you might also qualify for state-specific grants. Some states may even have additional higher education grants available specifically for older adults. It is important for the student to check with their financial aid counselor to find out how to apply for specialized grants.

You must also fill out and submit a FAFSA form for state-sponsored college education grant. Be aware that your state might have specific deadlines for filling out and submitting their FAFSA forms. In many cases, the state may require you to submit your FAFSA form weeks or even months earlier than the federal deadline.

What about student loans?

Full time students can find it very difficult to make ends meet, especially if the student has the added cost of taking care of a family. Many students in the U.S. that enroll in low tuition schools, such as a community college, will find themselves with extra money available from federal and state aid grants, after fees and book purchases are paid off. This extra money available after disbursement can be used to offset a student’s living expenses.

In many parts of the country where day to day and monthly expenses are higher than average, it may be necessary for the student to apply for student loans. The student must carefully decide whether or not to take advantage of these loans.

The best advantage of utilizing student loans is the ability to defer repayment until schooling is complete. Subsidized loans sponsored by the federal government have the advantage of having the loan interest paid by the government during the time the student is in school, while unsubsidized loans will start accruing interest the moment payment is disbursed to the recipient.

If the student can effectively take on a part time job during their college career, they can avoid such added debt arising from student loans.

What about scholarships?

Graduation caps, books and laptop

There are many different scholarship programs available to people of all backgrounds and ages. Various businesses have specific scholarship programs, as do many private organizations all around the country.

Many college students turn to the internet to find a scholarship program that fits their needs. There may be specific requirements that need to be met, such as age, height, and ethnicity. Certain areas of study and the location of the student sometimes directly affect the types of scholarships available as well.

Students that currently work for certain corporations may want to ask if their employer offers such opportunities as well. Many businesses have higher education programs that may pay partially, or even all, of a student’s education costs. Business backed education scholarships not only offer the student an opportunity to advance their education but can open up other higher paying positions within the workplace.

Students who have demonstrated exemplary grades and performance ahead of most in their class may qualify for scholarships sponsored by their schools. Students who desire to apply for these common school scholarships may need to compete for them by writing an essay or completing a project, while still others may be handpicked by the school.

What happens after college?

Now that the older student has completed their goal in gaining a higher education, finding a better job than the one that they once held or starting their own business with the proper training they have received is the next step.

No matter if the student’s goal is to progress in their current field of expertise or take on a completely different career than what they are accustomed to, past working experience, as well as the added benefit of a higher education, will allow the older college graduate to pursue more employment options than they could before. With an outstanding and consistent work history and the demonstrated drive to better themselves, older job seekers will have an advantage over the younger competition.

If not, the message seems slovenly–like letting one’s slip hang down or leaving one’s fly open. As technicians or nurses, would they be just as careless?

    As a college-level writing teacher who learned MUCH from students who wrote about their experiences, I would probably enjoy tutoring some of these returning students.
    I hope they all hone their writing skills, no matter what their fields.

I couldn’t make it to academic level and I couldn’t tell anyone about it and I just kept it inside me and it has been a major disturbance in my whole life. I’m 26 years of age but these dream never left me and I got no money and no job and I am not even eligible to loan any money from anywhere. I always want to be a business women and a lawyer even a doctor or an accountant, although I’m into art as well and I graduate screen acting and that’s about it. I want to be something that contains these dreams and I know u got what it takes, I am a challenger and will fight all the way of I got any chance to fulfill these dreams. No one understands it because it is very impossible to achieve such dreams I have but no there not just dreams they’re my goals that have been living inside me since I was born. I love many things but I haven’t got the right people to help me or I haven’t got the right connection yet. I have little sleeps cause from these dreams. I want to achieve them to help kids who are facing family problem and help those whoever needs an extra hand I want to be there for them.

    Do you think I have a chance? I pray every night asking God to give me a second chance by winning a lotto or show some of His supernatural way that no man can define it. Please could I get an opportunity to live again so alive in this world or this life?

My early years were spent taking care of my parents who both passed but I did not pursue College at after that due to a successful sales career. Now, it is my turn. I am searching for Grants, etc. to help with funding. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
