Pell Grants and Why Students Should Apply

Who Should Apply?

3. Young Parents

Students who don’t fit the traditional model of entering college right after high school are good candidates for the Pell Grant. They need more money just to get by. Between diapers, food, and taking caring of themselves and their child, these students have a lot on their plate. They may have less time to put towards applications for scholarships, making this kind of money easier for them to obtain. As they already have someone other than themselves to provide for, staying out of debt is even more imperative for them.
