6. Available For All
The Pell Grant is one of the most helpful grants currently available for college students in both undergrad and graduate studies. It’s available for a wide variety of students and can help keep debt low even as the cost of higher education continues to skyrocket. While not everyone will get the full amount, enough to pay for community college and all the supplies that are needed for a year of education, many people will qualify for at least a partial grant. Fill out the FAFSA and see what happens. It couldn’t hurt but could help more than you ever thought possible.
