President Obama believes the importance of college education. He is, in fact, encouraging millions of Americans to go back to school and earn a degree. Hardworking employees earning a minimum wage and single moms included. Good thing that the president understands that even though most people wanted to go back to school and pursue a degree, they lack the financial capability to do so. In fact, the president urged the congress to pass a new legislation to raise government grants for people who wish to go back to college.
Pell grant is defined as post-secondary educational federal grant sponsored by the US Department of Education. This is usually awarded based on financial need and it does not require repayment. Yes, you don’t have to pay it back. It’s absolutely free!
So, who qualifies for federal Pell grant? Everybody from low-income families and people working full-time who earns a low or minimum wage. The said grant can give them up to $15,000 a year to be spent on tuition, books, fees and other school-related expenses. This is almost enough, if not enough already, to pull you through a year in college. Getting free money for your education means lesser chances, or none at all, for you to depend on student loans just to get hold of that college degree.
