Government Education Grants
Dr. Tom Kimbrell the Arkansas Education Commissioner announced the recipients for the government education grants on school improvement. A total of $7.5 million will be received by all recipients combined for the 2011-2012 school year to help improve educational outcomes. Kimbrell said, “These federal grants will infuse these schools with the resources they need to make changes and help students achieve.”
Millions of students receive college grants every year. Thousands of grants are awaiting applicants, and students who successfully qualify for one or more of them. Students in need of educational financing for college courses are advised to submit applications as early as possible, for them not to miss out on different government grants specially those with quotas that are usually filled up early.
Millions of dollars are not being claimed for various government grants every year. This money should be used to help make it through tough economic time, to pay medical bills, or a grant to simply start a career. To avail of thousands of dollars for education, health for you or your family business, you simply need to apply.
Pell grants are basically used to pay tuition for both semesters, if there are any remaining amounts it will be given to you directly. If the grant is more than the amount of your tuition, it will be given to you in check for the remaining amounts. The amount can be used for other school related expense, which includes books and supplies and living expenses.
