Need some money for college? Probably, it’s crazy expensive, nowadays. Well, I have some great news. If you’re a woman over 30, then you qualify for some great grants and scholarships from the government. Keep reading to see why.
These grants and scholarships started when Obama took office in 2008. He wanted to raise the education level of America, and one of the best ways he saw was getting women over 30 back into college.
Getting a large grant or scholarship like this is one way to ensure that you will have sufficient time to devote to your studies without having to work endless hours at a second (or third) job.This grant can even be used to study online, so if you’re not near a large city, you can still get a quality education. Isn’t the internet a wonderful place these days?
The requirements for most grants and scholarships are simple — you just have to be in (or about to return to) college, and complete the application, which sometimes includes an essay. The essay usually will have something to do with either your goals and dreams, or perhaps your past life experiences. Also, once you write a core essay, it can usually be adapted with ease to fit the requirements of other scholarships.
Now, the question is how to find as many scholarships and money for school that you need. The two easiest ways are to visit the Financial Aid department of your local community college, and also to do a web search. Looking online for “money for college” can yield hundreds, if not thousands of programs and many you can even apply for online. So, if you’ve made the decision to return to school, all you have holding you back is looking for the money — go to it!
