Pell Grants and Why Students Should Apply

2. Why Should I Apply?

College used to be much more affordable for the general public. Almost anyone could put themselves through college with nothing more than a part-time job. They’d do schoolwork during the day and go to their place of employment for a few hours every night. Weekends were free for some leisure or extra study time. If more money was needed, one could even work on the weekend. It was a lot of work, but at the end of the entire process, the student would be left with a valuable diploma, experience in the real world, and no outstanding debt to start their adult life with.
