A Pell Grant is money the U.S. federal government provides for students who need it to pay for college.
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.

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.

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:
With the income, assets and expenses that a family reports on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or Fafsa, the Department of Education determines how much a family should be able to contribute to college. That, in turn, determines whether a student qualifies for low-income federal programs like Pell Grants and subsidized student loans. But most consumers do not realize that colleges are free to come up with their own ways of defining a family’s ability to pay. Most colleges stick largely to the Fafsa formula. But hundreds of private colleges require another form, the CSS/Financial Aid Profile, and use a related formula created by the College Board, the nonprofit organization that administers the SAT and Advanced Placement tests. Many colleges blend the federal and College Board methods, tweaking them as they see fit, or simply add their own factors to the mix. The result is that comparable colleges can reach very different conclusions, and they do not make those formulas public. A crunch of g ...
So for all of you that believe college atheltes should be paid, can you get specific? Just the money makers like football, basketball and hockey? Should athletes from teams that don't generate money be paid? And did you know many are paid in the form of a Pell Grant. Help me out. Sports to the Max, 7:00 on WCCO Radio!
April 11th is the payment deadline to either pay your tuition, or set up a payment plan. If you are receiving the full Pell grant then you may or may not be also receiving a refund on this date. If you have questions, feel free to contact us at TRiO!!!
Although there is already a budget in place for Fiscal Year 2015 due to last year’s passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act, this week the House considered a number of budget proposals. None of these budgets will replace the current budget for 2015, but they are useful as policy documents and lay out important priorities. When deciding which budgets to support, I consider the following criteria: (1) whether the budget is good for El Paso, including support for veterans, Fort Bliss and the border; (2) does it put our nation on a sustainable financial path; (3) does it make the investments needed for economic growth and opportunity; (4) is it fair. The House Majority sponsored a budget (H.Con.Res. 96) authored by Paul Ryan. Although this budget passed the House, I voted against it as it did not fulfill the four criteria above. It seeks to decrease the deficit by making deep cuts to non-defense discretionary spending and entitlements, including Medicare and Medicaid. These are the programs that provide health ...

Applied for a Pell Grant today... relatively easy process online...
Paul Ryan's Path to Prosperity budget plan is genuinely extreme: 69 percent of its $4.8 trillion in non-defense budget cuts would come from programs that benefit Americans with low or moderate incomes, such as Medicaid, food stamps, Pell Grants, the Social Services Block Grant, and Supplemental Security Income for the elderly and disabled. And Veterans. It would end Medicare as we know it by converting it to a premium-support voucher. And while the poor are asked to pay through the nose, it would give millionaires an average tax cut of $200,000. Yet Georgia Republicans feel it doesn't go far enough...Michelle Nunn should start packing for Washington DC.
In response to President Obama’s fiscal 2015 budget, Republicans in the U.S. House of Representative proposed an alternative plan earlier this month, which included cuts to Financial Aid programs in higher education, including freezing the maximum Pell Grant at its current level for the next d…

for the school money, the Federal Pell Grant has came in, when do the unsubsidized and subsidized loans coming in? I thought they were paid at the same time?
Just got a letter in the mail with some great news! I haven't been in school for the past year because I had to pay off a student loan. Its been a very important goal of mine to pay off this loan so I can continue with my education. I think I have about 3 semesters left. Its been depressing to not have finished school yet. To not have the career that I want so badly because I don't have my degree yet. Working jobs that are just getting the bills paid, but not stimulating my mind & growth. No challenge. I get down on myself because I really expected more from myself, to finish on time. But getting out into this real world, you get real life responsibilities... & bills! I can't lie, its hard working & trying to maintain an education. When you don't have scholarships or pell grant. College is so *** expensive! At times I've even questioned if I wanted to go back...put myself in more debt. To get that letter in the mail today, and see in writing that I paid it off was one of the best feelings I've felt in a . ...
I GOT MY FULL AMOUNT OF Financial Aid FOR TEMPLE. WO! (and a little bit more. I was given a higher Pell Grant than what was estimated)
If you or any of your children have lattice and want to attend college, vocational rehab will help with the tuition after the Pell Grant pays. They will also help with the placement of a job after graduation. The federal government is required to hire 2% of patients with vision problems, and because the erosion's cause periods of legal blindness and require magnification to see it falls into the code 21 priority for jobs.
Paul Ryan is a liar and hypocrite who benefited from a Pell Grant when his dad died. He's evil take from D poor to give 2 D rich

BLACK HISTORY - DID YOU KNOW! 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 mi ...

The Washington Flyer January 31, 2014 "There is nothing which can better deserve your patronage, than the promotion of science and literature. Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness." byGeorge Washington Senators Unveil New School Choice Proposals On Tuesday, Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Tim Scott (R-SC) unveiled two encouraging new school choice proposals at the American Enterprise Institute. Frederick Hess, noted education expert and author, moderated the event. Senator Lamar Alexander, former Secretary of Education, introduced the Scholarship for Kids Act which would utilize a percentage of existing federal funds to create a voucher program for K-12 education. Students would receive $2,100 to spend at the public or private school of their choice. The program would potentially be available to 11 million children from low-income households. Senator Alexander opined that his plan builds on successful higher education programs like the GI Bill and the Pell Grant. In his p ...
Lunch for 9 Million? By Wick Sloane, Dec 20., Insider Higher Ed. To: President Barack H. Obama Subject: Missing from Your College Plan: 45 Million Peanut Butter Sandwiches. Per Week. Forty-five million peanut butter sandwiches a week? This 45 million idea came to me the other day, at a sink. I was washing peanut butter from the wooden paddle hungry students use every day to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the Boston community college where I work. Bread donated via Panera and the Minute Man High School Parents Association. PB&J bought with donor funds. Why not, I thought, one peanut butter sandwich per school day for each of the nine million students (source) on a Pell Grant? How many of these are the same students who were eligible for free and reduced lunch in high school? No one knows and no one is counting. How many are from households on food stamps? No one’s asking, either. Why not, then, 45 million peanut butter sandwiches at colleges each week? Until we come up with a better idea. In ...

A report in Monday's Huffington Post reveals that, in the fiscal year ending September 30th, 2013, the DoE raked in $42.5 billion in profit from federal student loans—marking its second highest profit margin ever. The DoE appears to have become dependent on this windfall from student loans to pad its coffers. According to The Huffington Post, In a sign of just how important student loan profits have become for the Education Department’s bottom line, its reported gains off lending to students and their families over the last year comprised nearly half of the agency’s total outlays, the biggest share since at least 1997. Last year, profits from student loans surpassed funding for the Pell Grant given to low-income college students. Education Secretary Arne Duncan has come under fierce criticism for shielding the country's private lenders from accusations of breaking federal law and contracts, including lobbying with ALEC to block student loan reform. He has also been slammed for supporting a bipartisa ...

WOW. The eight month course is $18,300. After the Pell Grant and Direct Stafford I would cover $15,200 but I would have to take out a private loan to cover the difference and I dont want to do that until I check out other options. My SIL suggested I check out community college.
Just filled out my FAFSA and I'm eligible to receive a pell grant of 6000$ and a direct stafford loan of 10$! That's ok with me!
When folks say they can't afford college I automatically assume that they can't get the Pell Grant.

Fact vs. Fiction Fiction: Part-time students can't get Financial Aid. Fact: Part-time students can receive Financial Aid, but there are certain guidelines and restrictions, just as there are for full-time students. Federal aid programs allow a student to attend on a part-time basis [at least six credits in a traditional semester program] and receive both grants and loans. Students who take less than six credits may still qualify for a Federal Pell Grant or some private educational loans. In some cases, the amount awarded to a part-time student might be less than what is awarded to a full-time student.
I hate college. If you live on campus or whatever you can't get your pell grant and they said something about taking tuition and book fee out of it so we get nothing!
The government knows most can afford it so they make it so the pell grant is half and you have to take out loans.
Man praying my pell grant goes thru
You should also be receiving a conf. from fafsa--Pell Grant estimate is exciting!--don't want Stafford unless NO other choice
Doesn't matter. They got a PELL Grant to support 4 years of partying - then, move back w/mom, eat bacon, play games.
Register for classes I'm happy and a bit mad at the same time. The school didn't give me the full amount in pell grant, it only paid for the tuition. And actually it only paid for most of it, I still owe the difference that wasn't paid, on top of still needing to get books, my knife set, blinders for my cooking classes, and whatever else I need to my English and Weight Training class. God I need you right now, I just need a miracle to happen, I need one of the many jobs I applied for to come through. I'm glad I have a great mother Lorraine, I know she will help me the best she can, but this is just wrong.
I can only laugh when certain people in my friend group try to tell me how important the Pell Grant is. Or, when they say things like, "I have to choose between rent and food." I even had a friend tell me that he was surprised about how creative he had to get with the meals that he cooked because he didn't have money to buy food (I also found it interesting that he used the word "ingenuity" and not "ghetto," perhaps because he was now a part of that same group). I had another friend tell me that "life is hard" because her parents weren't able to afford paying for her rent anymore. Welcome to America, the America that isn't talked about, the America thats legislated against, the America that's looked down upon, the America that's forgotten about, the America where opportunity isn't so readily available. I told them that where I'm from, people have been living and surviving like since the beginning of time. They're only just now beginning to care about these things because they're now starting to affect ...

Pell Grants really in courage kids to finish college because if they don't finish they have to pay back every bit of the grant back ! I'm sure if the child can not pay it back they would have to face the court system ! I know for a fact the government does not play around when it comes to money ! They will go after who ever the check was made out to.. I know of a lot of rich famous people who have been thrown in prison over tax invasion so that is not paying taxes I wonder what they would do for not giving them their money back ! I would think it would be the same ! Go to school children and do your best to pass because not going and/or failing the class might be the same in the eyes of the government !
What is the Definition of Postsecondary Education? Answer A level of education out of high school is considering post secondary education. Some may wonder why the term post secondary education is important in the US any education achieved after high school is completely optional and thus needs to be payed back to the government. What is Postsecondary Education? Answer Post secondary education is just a fancy way of saying you are going to college. Universities can be either public or private. They also will offer either 2 year or 4 year degrees. Sometimes vocational schools are also referred to as post secondary education. How to Finance Postsecondary Education Many students find themselves scrambling at the beginning and end of each college semester to find financing to continue their education. There are a variety of ways to finance a postsecondary education. With a student loan, you will have your college tuition paid, but you will have to pay all of that money back plus interest when you graduate. Gra ...

The tool of Economic Oppression used by Racist will keep those that cannot afford to move to areas where property taxes are too high. Minorities will be prevented from obtaining high quality education. Many will believe that attending any college will be enough, but they are sadly mistaken, because no matter the level of education, there is a big difference between obtaining an education and that of a quality education. Never forget "Jim Crow" Laws. The minorities that are kept from getting the jobs that pay high wages will be prevented from moving to the areas where education is of higher "quality." There children will suffer in the long run, because they will not be able to meet the entrance exam requirements, because they were not taught what they should have been taught. They will not obtain the quality education they should have received to pass the examination, and the racist will only say, "see they are not genetically able to pass the exams." Economic Oppression is the tool of choice to use in the ...

Unconditional Love is on my mind. My mother Lillian was a rare bird. When she divorced my adopted father Don, she asked me when I was 12 years old "Billie, where do you want to live, Florida or Hawaii? I was 12, living in California and had been surfing the west coast for 4 years with my older brother Gary. I quickly responded, "great mom, I want to live in Hawaii." We arrived in Hawaii August, 1966 with our dogs Toy Toy and Sammy (Toy Bosten Terriers). My mother got a job at the Outrigger Canoe Club, where some of my surfing heroes were members. I met Duke Kahanamoku, Fred Hemmings and many other great surfers and Beachboys. My mother was poor, money was tight, however every Christmas she bought me a new surfboard. My deviant behavior was blooming and rock and roll was rebelling, drug use was prevailing and boy was I having fun! I am sure there were many days my mother was concerned about me. Kill ha'ole day at McKinley High School was overwhelming for me so my mother argued with the school pr ...

Another person just asked y did I get out the military as if the military is the only source of income n the world. I wasn't about to work 20 yrs & struggle trying 2 get a degree 1-2 classes @ a time... My education is a priority 4 me. At the end of dem 20 yrs u get a 2000 sum dollar retirement possibly.. Who TF can live off that. Your 20 yrs in the military with an associates.. Ha if ya have that will not guarantee u a job and especially if u had a bs job while n the military... Between u/e. Housing.disability.hope/pell grant and zell miller bc my GPA is over 3.8. I make more than I did when I was n. EDUCATION is key 2 many things 4 me. Now please no1 ask y I got out again. I couldn't tolerate being a yes person especially to Mfs who sometimes dont know left from right ! When sum retire without at least a masters. U just go right ahead and start back from the bottom with another job !! ; ) Happy Saturday !
So excited! Found a school that will do Pell Grants , and the program I'm in notes if a community college I'm going to does Pell Grants I will get the money from the grant , and the 5000$ state loan on top of the pell grant! So that's anywhere between 8-10k total! Making all the calls Monday to get in for the January semester. =)
So dads layoff may have been a blessing in disguise because according to my Financial Aid status, I juat recieved the Pell Grant and I have enough to continue going to school...not saying that the layoff was the best thing that ever happened, which it wasnt, but it kinda helped

Can anyone who received both a Cal Grant and a Pell Grant help me out???
Just the fact that you are a member of The H.O.P.E. Program means you qualify for the Pell Grant on your own Income Merits! Up to $5645 can be yours for 2013!
This is from my brother Ikhide. Please! We as Black folks must stamp out this excessive exhibitionist consumerism in our children. They don't have books even when the state gives them a Pell Grant because they spend it on stupid A 350 dollar Ferragamo belts (and cost more money when the clerks call the cops on them because they don't fit the profile of a Ferragamo or Barney's shopper) and FORTY ONE PERCENT of food challenged children are Black. Come on, don't we have better things to say and do? Here's what Ikhide says: Ikhide R. Ikheloa Whenever I turn down a request by one of our numerous kids for money, I get rude photos of evil mean dads texted to me. Apparently I said NO to a request to buy a belt. Cost, $350. Then I got this. My dear, any belt that you can't buy at Target, I reject, IJN! I am still laughing! Nonsense!
Did you know Oxy has one the best grad rates of Pell Grant recipients?
WE are entitled to our Pell Grants just as much as you are entitled to parents who pay your school for you.
Just a question for all my fellow 2013 college students is anyone else having trouble being approved for their federal subsidized loan? Supposedly according to PJs College of Cosmetology after being told for the past three months that I was waiting for my pell grant first excuse was an IRS issue- handled second- the government shut down bs fed student aid not affected per fed student aid third- discrepancy of my age handled now come to find out they have had my grant for some time now and its my fed sub loan the government is supposedly denying to pay. I'm just wondering if I'm the only one going through this. I just find it to be funny how up until just a few days ago when i confronted them about fed aid saying my grant went through PJs kept telling me that I was waiting for my grant.

You know, folks, shutting down the federal government is not something which affects only faceless bureaucrats who live in Northern Virginia or Southern Maryland. You probably know someone in your town whose small business depends on his or her contract with the federal government. He'll be out of a job come Tuesday. The clerks at your post office won't be getting paid come Tuesday. And they can't go to the local welfare office to apply for relief, because there won't be any SNAP applications processed there until the federal government reopens. Planning an overseas trip for business or pleasure? I hope you've got a passport already. And I certainly hope you won't run into any trouble abroad, because the clerks in the consulates will be out of work in a foreign country. They might even look to you for help! Any student who is waiting for his or her Pell Grant money will be out of luck come Tuesday. Applicants for Stafford loans will also be left in the lurch. We won't even mention the people who are ...
UPDATED: Native American Bank is willing to work with enrolled BCC students, who want to open up either a checking or savings account, with zero down the week before Pell payment. This is a good thing, it will help your establish a new account, and if you are paid a refund check from the Pell Grant, you may deposit some or all your money and you will save on the cost of check cashing. But you will need to keep your checking and/or savings account active to benefit long-term from having a checking or savings account. There are benefits, to having a checking or savings account and you will have the stability of a savings or checking account to help you financially plan for your future. You may use a checking account to pay your bills, track your spending, record your bill payments, balance your home budget, and having your money in a checking account lets you write checks, which costs less than purchasing money orders to pay for things. Sometimes if you're paying regular bills such as car insurance, rent, . ...
