Grants For Students

Grants for students are offered by certain state, county, and federal agencies and by private individuals and organizations to help with the costs of paying for an education on the college and university level. South University Savannah offers federal financial aid programs for students who qualify. They come in the form of both grants, which do not need to be repaid, and loans, which must be repaid after graduation.

A student grant usually does not have to be repaid and gives the student a means to offset some tuition costs and, depending on the amount of the grant, may substantially lower a students overall college debt.

Paying for college has become an expensive undertaking, leaving many students deep in debt for many year after their college experience is over.

Many students don't understand the negative effects that student loans have on their credit rating when payments are not made on time. Student loans are not forgiven and they are expected to be repaid.

Fortunately, there is free money available. There are many grants and scholarships available for higher education totaling billions of dollars a year. The challenge for most students is finding the grants and other financial aid awards that are available for their particular needs.

For some sources of money, all you need to do is look around you. Churches and other religious institutions offer grants and scholarships. Veteran's organizations, boy scout and girl scout associations, masonic foundations, employers, and alumni associations are good sources for grants and scholarships.

There are many books, found in libraries and book stores, that are great sources for finding scholarships. The internet is another good source.

If you are employed, ask your employer if grants and scholarships are offered or if they offer tuition reimbursement for employees. Many companies offer excellent tuition reimbursement programs for employees who want to pursue higher education.

As a student, you have to be very careful when accepting, so called, grants and scholarships from certain companies or organizations because what you get may actually be a loan that has to be repaid.

Student loans are monies that have to be paid back to the lender. Grants and scholarships are stipends that should not have to be repaid.
