College Student Grants And Scholarships

Ronald Said:

Are there any grants / scholarships for a student returning to college a couple years after originally going.?

We Answered:

try to aim for grants/scholarships more... they are not to be paid back. its confusing sometimes, but just keep applying.

every big (and small) company you see (manufacturer, orgs, corps and groups also) all have grants and scholarships they hand out like candy. Walmart, Kmart, Target, Coke, computer companies etc etc etc

heres a link with a HUGE amount of some available. some you will need to copy and paste into a new window. also, fastweb (take the time to fill it in) will search databases and get back to you with a list of scholarships you qualify for.

Also contact all mens, womens associations in your state, they almost always have grants & scholarships. What ever field you are going into, contact the orgs, associations etc for them; Also check with professional organizations related to your career interests, such as the American Bar Association or the American Medical Association. they also always have scholarships. Research and dig, call then write. Its all worth it.

OVER apply; it doesnt hurt to have too many, and the extra funds can help with housing.…

SINGLE HELP………………………………

. A lot of corporations want to be seen as "good neighbors" in the community. And they need a way to attract young workers. So some of them grant scholarships, usually from $1,500 to $10,000.

When visiting the websites of these companies, on the home page look for something like: ABOUT US or CORP INFO. Click on that, and then look for something like: COMMUNITY or COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT.

check out:
1. BestBuy (2 scholarships from each store for $1,500 and they enter you at their headquarters for a $10,000 scholarship).

2. Comcast (your high school principal must recommend you for a $1,000 scholarship. They also have paid internship at a limited number of locations nationwide.)

3. Cracker Barrel ( for employees, or their children - $1,000

4. Kohls (each store awards $50 and a certificate; then submits their winners to the region. Regional winners receive $1,000 and are submitted to the corporate headquarters. Corporate level winners get a $5,000 scholarship and a $1,000 donation to their favorite charity.)

5. Wal-Mart ( Each store awards $1,000 to 2 students at each school in their area. Or if you have been an employee for 12 months, you qualify to apply for a $2,500 scholarship.

6. McDonalds (as Ronald McDonald House Charities at: www.RMHC.ORG) varies by region of the county. But a typical award is $1,000. May be from the corporation or from an association of stores in your area.

Each of these companies have a simple application (1–2 pages) process.

Several of these are receiving applications now. Some are closing as soon as Feb 12th.

What is the average amount American college students pay in taxes on scholarships,grants,and fellowships?

We Answered:

As long as the money is used exclusively for school, it isn't taxable. If the money is used for something else, say to buy a car for the student to get back and forth to school in, that portion would be taxable.

Tony Said:

Are scholarships and grants available to a 52 year old african-american male first time college student?

We Answered:

There are sooo many available its sickening. Go to the guidance councelors office where you want to go to college and just ask... Oh and bring a wheel barrow.

Discuss It!

Online applications such like grants and scholarships are not well approved because of extensive reviews of students choosing impostors to take sessions for them. That indicates even if you had a computer, the outcomes would be very doubtful for your interviewer.
