Students who submit a FAFSA have a 72% greater chance of staying in college than their peers who do not file the aid form. The positive effect of filing a is even more significant for lower-income students eligible for the free, Federal Pell Grant. As FAFSA filers, these students’ graduation rates were 122% higher than lower-income students who did not file a FAFSA. Read about the independent 2011 study and how completing the FAFSA with the help of a professional FAFSA preparer, who charges a fee, or by filing it for free on the US Dept. of Education website each year helps college students persist to graduation:

So it’s a republican world for 2015. These are some new policies that are going to be passed. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform is going to be “adjusted”. The “swaps push-out rule” that was written by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sheila Bair is going to be repealed. This was one of the crucial rules that put limits on how they were going to use taxpayer backing on high-risk loans, with a few other changes that benefit Wall Street as well. The IRS looks like they are being “punished” and their budget will be cut under $4.9 billion. $300 million in Pell Grant cuts to low-income students. The money will instead be going to student loan debt collectors. Section 8 housing will be losing half a billion in housing, and will not raise with climbing rents over the years. Also there is a $300 million dollar cut on housing programs for the homeless. No “restart rules” for interstate truck drivers. That was a law that enforced “sleep rules” and they could drive only certain hours on a ...

A Pell Grant is money the U.S. federal government provides for students who need it to pay for college. Federal Pell Grants are limited to students with financial need, who have not earned their first bachelor's degree, or who are not enrolled in certain post-baccalaureate programs, through participating institutions. The Pell Grant is named after Democratic U.S. Senator Claiborne Pell of Rhode Island, and was originally known as the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant. A Pell Grant is generally considered the foundation of a student's financial aid package, to which other forms of aid are added. The Federal Pell Grant program is sponsored by the United States Department of Education which determines the student's financial need. The U.S. Department of Education uses a standard formula to evaluate financial information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for determining the student's expected family contribution (EFC). The Pell Grant is covered by legislation titled t ...

Lisa Humphrey "As the mother of a college student and the wife of a veteran, I see no reason why both of these subjects cannot be addressed, and addressed in a timely manner. If Congress had gotten their job done, students would not be graduating into an economy where they cannot find a job in their field, nor would veterans be standing in long lines for treatment. In the past 10 years the bachelor degree graduates student loan debt went from an average if $18,000 to $29,400; when is Congress going to address THAT issue? In the last dozen years we have been fighting 2 wars yet the Veterans Administration was in no way prepared to treat all of the returning injured veterans; when is Congress going to address THAT issue? And before someone tries to "correct" me, yes, VA funding has increased for the last few years - but never near enough, never near what the President asked for in his budget, and Congress continued to ignore this then pretended to be surprised when the VA could not deal with the incredible ...

Here’s good info on Madison County education that contrasts with Thad's opponent saying he opposes any federal funding of education - $800 million per year for K12, plus more with higher ed. MADISON COUNTY Community College/Workforce. Cochran's support for education is evident in the amount of federal resources he has helped drive to MS, including Madison County. Mississippi's community colleges, including Holmes Community College (which has a Ridgeland campus), receive about $250M in federal funds each year. In 2011-2012, about 4,900 students at Holmes CC received $17.8 million in Federal Pell Grants to help them offset the cost of attending college. Without these funds, our state's community & junior college system would be crippled - not to mention, our workforce training facilities would have to be shuttered. Cochran's work to steer federal workforce funds to MS has provided countless hours of training to Mississippians, resulting in thousands of new jobs. K12. Again Cochran's consistent support ...

The federal government made enough money on student loans over the last year that, if it wanted, it could provide maximum-level Pell Grants of $5,645 to 7.3 million college students. The $41.3-billion profit
Dr. Kimbrough questions Dr. Dre I wonder if Dr. Dre knows that not only does USC admit very few black students, but the ones who are there are subject to serious racism and racial profiling. During a recent campus party, the LAPD sent over 70 police officers in riot gear with a helicopter to break up the party after noise complaints. All the while, the white kids were partying up in their fraternity houses without so much as a peep from the police. Additionally, for Dr. Dre, his $35 million dollar donation (half of the $70 million he is sharing with Levin) is merely a drop in the bucket for a school like USC that is sitting on an amount of money that no HBCU will have for at least another 100 years. USC shed no tears when Dr. Dre’s baby brother was murdered in the violence that has poisoned the black community. They did nothing when his son died from an overdose on the drugs that were dropped into black communities in the 1980s. HBCUs have scholars working to solve these problems, and thousands of ...
President Bush Walked The Walk For Black Americans “The role of the government is to open up opportunities for people and give people a chance to succeed.” — President George W. Bush President George W. Bush appointed more blacks to high-level positions than any president in our nation’s history and spent record money on education, job training, small business development and health care. The number of new businesses started was an incredible 4.7 percent increase, and over $24 billion was spent for small business loans and grants. Federal spending on education increased nearly 40 percent, with record expenditures for important programs that affect blacks. The No Child Left Behind Act, a civil rights measure designed to achieve education reform, was fully funded to the tune of $13.1 billion. President Bush also spent $18.8 million for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s). Spending on Pell Grant funding nearly doubled, helping more than 5.5 million students attend college i ...

So as I look for jobs on the interwebs I have noticed several things . One is you want people with experience but you want someone to adapt quickly into your company . Now I'm not the sharpest colored pencil but wouldn't a person you could train to do it your way be better then breaking somebody in like a horse rode in the triple crown ten years ago. That old saying "old dogs don't learn new tricks " comes to mind . I think its time for a pell grant and get some certs and get that big money . I'm not gonna settle till I'm some where I wanna be and wanted to be . determined but frustrated . I'm leave it in gods hands .

I'm trying to get out of the "no job or minimum wage job" trap that I'm in. I have a two-year "degree" from a fake *** ripoff school that used to be called Hamilton Business College, and is now called Kaplan (stay away from there) but I might as well wipe my *** with that "degree", even though I completed it early, with a 3.85 GPA, because Hamilton Business College was supposedly "about to be accredited" twenty years ago when I went there, but even now, twenty years later, you still can't transfer credits from there to a real school, because they're still not accredited, and employers still only consider you for entry level positions that you could get without a degree when you have a "degree" from Kaplan (formerly known as Hamilton Business College). I also have 52 credits from a real school (DMACC) and I need to actually complete a degree program there, so that I can finally make a living wage, instead of constantly being on the verge of homelessness, as I have been for the past ten years.

Just learned from my sister that my niece got a Pell grant for college. Congratulations Liz All! Full steam ahead!
I couldn't have made it through school without the Pell Grant
In 1988, when I entered college and the last time I made even close to minimum wage, the minimum wage was $3.35, my rent was $350/month, and tuition for $500 per semester or about $125/month. In 2014, minimum wage is $7.25, same apartment is $625, and tuition is $3300 per semester or about $800/month. My parents gave me about $500/month and I think I worked only 10-20 hours per week. My first year, I had scholarships and financial aid in the few thousand range including Pell Grants. I didn't own a car, but had a $500 moped that got like 100 miles to the gallon. It had a 1 gallon tank and I had to premix the gas with oil in a 5 gallon drum that I had. My sister had a car which we "shared" which meant she had a car that I used on occasion. We would also drive back home together. I didn't bother buying any furniture for my apartment other than a bed, a desk, a file cabinet, and a chair. I got this stuff at Walmart back when Walmart was all American. I brought my 13 inch color TV and VCR and some night stands ...
Moment of Thought: It’s not good for the country to raise minimum wage to $15/hr. for folks with no education or little experience. This move will make big businesses increase employees health care cost, lay more people off to counter act the increase, reduce the quality of service/product receive. For the ones receiving $15 this means you don’t qualify for government assistance programs anymore. No big tax returns for having a bunch of children and so forth. Since you make $15 an hr. (which is $31,200 a yr.; $1200 every two wks.; about $925 after taxes & benefits) you will be held accountable for your new found wealth. But, you’ll realize what many working middle class already knew… It’s hard to pay bills, eat, cover emergencies, pay for child care, car payments, and try buy extra things like Jordan’s, weave, & name brand clothes unless your financially savvy or have a working spouse. $31K is just enough money to NOT get food stamps, reduce school lunch, Pell Grants, WIC, Medicaid, utility & ...

Should of stayed my *** at del tech and ride those Federal Pell Grant to success
I recently posted a meme on FB that pointed out some glaring examples of the schism that separates the rational left from the radical right. My favorite Libertarian scoffed my post as political drivel to which I responded: This rhetoric is political but to call it drivel is to not consider advancing the quest for a better quality of life for the citizens of this country. Republicans’ need to define morality seeks to restrict women’s access to healthcare. In 2011, there were nearly 1,000 Republican-sponsored bills in state legislatures to restrict a woman’s right to legal abortion services. Fully 68% of these new provisions restrict access to abortion services, a striking increase from previous years, when 26% of new provisions restricted abortion. Abortion indeed is a morality issue. Aside from issues due to health reasons, it assaults conservative moral sensitivities but it is also the personal, moral decision a woman must reconcile with her God. Morality must not be ...
Good feeling to have maxed out all TA and Pell Grants funds and maintained a 3.6GPA through 2 semesters

Tennesse Tech at Memphis : CNA , DA , X-Ray , LPN also plumbing , general contraring etc .. GED courses and testing Moore tech : general contracting , plumbing ,wielding etc ... UT of Memphis , Methodist school of nursing CBU , Southwest , U of M : All fields of the studies medicine U of M , Southwest , CBU , Leymone , Rhodes : All fields of study All these schools are free if you qualify ( Pell Grants etc ...) and some of us do qualify to send our children to these schools . These schools offer 89 % to 100 % placement in some feilds . If they want to continue their studies these schools credits will transfer to each school . Why would allow your child to attend a school where you must take out a loan ( Concord , ITT tech etc...) even the department of human services have programs that no loan is required plus Concord and others are not accredited that means what have learned will not transfer . Education is not cheap or easy ( 6 to 9 mos ) if comes easy , it leaves easy
College Board recommends changes in the Pell Grant program:
So i guess its official... Im finally going to college lol... thank you PELL GRANT. be cool go to school
I just read that applying for a Pell grant is possible so long as you don't have a bachelor's... maybe something to bring up?
government grants, like a Pell Grant, is dependent on the student picking that school and qualifying, thats "revenue" generated
Why is it that I only got only $1280 for a Pell grant and others get more to go back to college?

Carol was out with the Illini Democrats today to fight for Pell Grant funding, so students can continue to afford an education. Help us send a strong advocate for student issues to Springfield!
"Expanding Pell Grant eligibility for short-term job training is key to closing the skills gap" --> READ:
Holy cow...we just filed our FAFSA (financial aid) applications and they estimated that we each are eligible for a $3000 Pell grant. 5th year of college it's about darn time the government is gonna give me some money! Even though it will only pay for like two classes...I am incredibly grateful! First time receiving financial aid besides loans...suddenly the jokes I made years ago about popping out a kid to get financial aid are a lot more serious lol
less than 500. Pointless to take a loan but a Pell Grant would be nice.
Please get out and vote this fall. We have to get some people with Oklahoma values, not tea party values in the house. I don't care if they are repub or demo, if they use common sense and don't bow to ultra conservatism. April 11, 2014 House passes Ryan budget that hurts kids, families, and seniors The House on Thursday passed the NEA-opposed Ryan budget by a vote of 219 – 205, with no Democrats supporting it and 12 Republicans voting no. The budget sacrifices the well-being of the middle class and our most vulnerable populations, including children, to give deep tax breaks to those who need it the least. Instead of replacing the devastating sequester cuts in upcoming years, the Ryan budget would slash spending on domestic programs that help kids and families – like education – by nearly $800 billion. The maximum Pell Grant award would be frozen, making the dream of college unattainable for even more students. Medicaid, which provides healthcare for one-third of our nation’s children, would be cut ...
I am SO done with lsc-o! Last semester they took away almost all of my pell grant because supposedly i'm "not really in need of it". And this semester they have my account locked because I haven't logged in for a while, and they won't unlock it because nobody EVER answers the phone. Or when they finally do everyone is completely incompetent and doesn't know the first thing about the website! I'm so aggravated. I seriously don't even want to give them my money ever again. rant over.
have you done calculations on how much they get to say mismanagement is the end all be all. Excluding Pell Grant
Today we protested at office b/c of his support of Pell Grant cuts and the Ryan budget.
Under the Iowa students will receive $78.7 million less in Pell Grant funding, cc:
I have no phone number for Christopher Scott Braden, but for those of you who do, please encourage him to go online and complete his financial aid interview and go to the financial aid office to sign the verification worksheet that I have turned in for him. Hopefully he has done this, but as of when I completed what I can of his pell grant and student loan process, he had not. Deadline is coming up.
Cause I had fine from me not being a fulltime student which made me not eligible for my ohio pell grant.
Send a letter to your Representative and Senators urging them to protect and invest in the Pell Grant program.
House narrowly passes GOP budget that would freeze grant funds--How your representative voted
Going to make an appointment next week for my PELL Grant, time to get rolling for school this fall. 👏
How the proposed Pell Grant reform could affect you |
college students take notice speak the heck up! you are going to pay dearly with a Paul Ryan budget!On top of these draconian cuts to nutrition and health, Rep. Ryan’s budget systematically cuts or dismantles key supports that provide economic security and mobility for struggling families. He restricts the Pell Grants that help low- and moderate-income students attend college, We're talking about raising the Medicare age and ending Medicare as we know it, replacing it with vouchers that won't keep up with costs. Cutting Pell Grants and student loan funding. Cutting Medicaid while also repealing Obamacare. These are cuts that would hit a vast number of Americans hard. In fact, the cuts would be so broad and deep in people's lives, it can be hard to believe that this is seriously the budget plan of one of the major parties. But it is, and you don't need to exaggerate anything in Ryan's budget to make a very real case that we should be scared by it.
Ga state said I made too much last year and bc of that I won't get pell grant!!! But I get all the hope scholarship I need 😡
woo hoo,, been approved for $3380.00 of pell grant Money for the 2014-2015 school year, I am Kinda braggin here, but with that and the kindness of my hubby sharing his GI bill, by Nov 1, I will have and AAS in Human Services... currently no plan to pursue a bachelors as that requires an evil algebra class.
"It was close, but they've done it: House Republicans just voted to pass Paul Ryan's most radical budget yet. Republicans are now on record voting to cut off 616,000 students' Pell Grants, cancel 22 million Americans' health insurance, and gut crucial social safety-net programs like food stamps and job training assistance. Republicans would turn Medicare into a voucher scheme and repeal Obamacare just as tens of millions of Americans have already signed up. This is an attack on the poor and middle classes. It is not just indifference or ignorance. The damage that will be done if this becomes reality is well known. It takes intent and awareness to inflict this much harm on fellow human beings. That is the saddest part of this whole process." The first part is from 2014 Democratic Victory and the second part is from my friend Sister T (Teresa Blundell).
So are you saying SEC schools allow kids to keep Pell Grant money?
Just wanted to remind parents of seniors who want to apply for a pell grant, to go ahead as soon as you file your taxes. It takes a little longer for paper tax returns to be retrieved, than electronic returns. You guidance counselor probably gave you this info at some point. I know life gets hectic with a senior in the house so I'm sending a friendly reminder.
That's discouraging 4 students I'm sure & I'm disappointed hearing that too!! Student loans are avail when pell grant 0, right?
I was awarded the Pell Grant today for my journalism degree! Slowly but surely Cash!♥
Pell Grant is a type of aid that if a student qualifies, they are entitled to receive above a scholarship.
Really? Colllege athletes get Federal Pell Grant money, including $500K to
If an athlete does not graduate, the school benefited from a bogus Pell Grant subsidy. IMO, schools should be on the hook, not taxpayers.
I got HOPE all 4 years as well as Pell grant. Wouldn't have made ends meet without a job.
Athletes can get Pell Grant on top of full scholarship if they qualify.
If a student-athlete already receives a scholarship, what additional benefits does the Pell Grant provide?
Another interesting read on student-athletes on scholarship getting pell grant money! RT
That max a student can get with a Pell Grant for a school year is currently $5,645. Not quite Koch Brothers money.
To apply for a Pell Grant, I need to register for the draft.. lol. There's always a catch.
lmao the amount of aid i'm supposed to get in the pell grant went UP
I've decided I wanna go to school, I really want to go for cosmetology but the school in Athens won't take my pell grant. It something I always wanted to do so I think I'll take a student loan and go for it. My career choices are thin do to my stupid choices, I think I have a real chance being a cosmetologist. Praying hard for this..

In '76 a Pell grant covered 72% of 4yr public univ tuition. It's now 36% but GOP budget cuts Pell funds to RI by $12.7M? I…
I dare congress to take away my pell grant.
Because I got extra money from the federal government in the form of Pell Grants for school, the federal government is hitting me with a 45% tax on that extra money! That extra money paid for books, but they don't seem to care. 45%! This is ridiculous!
Fill out your name, email and phone below and when you hit APPLY NOW you will be taken directly to the PELL GRANT form that will also help you with schools!

Currently the maximum Pell Grant award level is $5,645, but under the Pell Grants won’t be available. …
I know there are people out there who know so much more than me..would someone please explain to me how Paul Ryan's Budget can possibly 'boost the economy'? Middle class will pay MORE taxes..millionaires less..public schools loose, Pell Grants get cut etc., etc. I don't see it..but then that's just me.
Among the 7 Alabama universities that provided Pell Grant info by sport, football players totaled $2.1 million

FAFSA application filed, eligible for a pell grant of $6000 for 2 semesters!! God is great!! Just waiting 2wks for financial aid status!! Now hurry up 6:30!! Got a MK meeting to attend at olive garden!!
Financial Aid Update: Returning students can expect to receive award offers in the beginning weeks of June 2014. If the application is selected for verification, the student will receive monthly email reminders to complete their file. If a student is eligible for the Pell Grant in 2013-14, and is enrolled less than full time (in either fall or spring semesters), they may utilize the "unused" portion of their Pell Grant for summer enrollment. Please check with the Financial Aid Office for specific information.
If you don’t think the Pell Grant matters one iota on Kauai, think again. We support the Pell Grant Protection Act legislation that preserves and expands access to Pell Grants, and here’s why:
