How many grants can you receive?

How many grants can you receive? Topic: Cover letters for college students still in school

Question: I am attending a community college right now (2010-2011), and will attend at the same institution in the 2011-2012 year as well. I have received $6,300 in financial aid from the college including the Federal Pell Grant (5,500 this year) and a Federal ACG grant (750 this year). I'm not sure how my EFC looks but it should be less than 2,000. Just an overlook on my financial standings. I will be transferring to TCU full time and looking at about $60k+ in tuition in order to attend the business school there. Total expenses are showing in between 80k and 90k, give or take particular choices in room/board. I have a list of several Federal/Texas grants that I meet the criteria for, but how many grants will I most likely receive? Below is a list of everything TCU/myself meet: (Name/Max amounts per year) Texas Pell Grant - $4,731 Fed. Pell Grant - $5,500 SEOG - $4,000 TEGP - $3,808 TCOG Program - $4,731 TEXAS Grant (not the pell) - $6,808 and also the Tuition Reduction for Students Taking More than 15 Hours. So again, what is the likelihood that I will receive many of these? If I received all of these then I would be cleared entirely and debt free, but obviously that doesn't really make much sense in the scheme of things. Sources for Aid/Amounts @ www.collegeforallTexans.com Thanks a ton to anyone who knows what they're talking about.

What grants you are eligible for depends on your EFC, academic history and your school. There's no limit to how many you can receive, but I cannot tell you for sure which ones you will receive. Your school will decide on that and will present you with an award letter. What I can tell you though, if you are currently receiving the Federal Pell and ACG this year, you should expect to receive the same next year. However, once you have transferred to TCU, the ACG will no longer be available to you since it is only for the first two years of study. You may still receive the Federal Pell until you've obtained your first bachelor's. More than likely, you will have to rely on loans to cover some or most of your tuition since no one has actually got their education paid in full by grants before. (To my knowledge.) Most students whom have an EFC of 0, may receive only 2 or 3 of the grants listed in your post. Speak to a financial aid counselor at your current school, and pay a visit to TCU's financial office too, to see your available options so you can get the most out of grants. Goodluck!

With your SSI income you would qualify for Food Stamps. If you have won your claim you would have to notify your case manger that your income has changed. http://www.dss.cahwnet.gov/foodstamps/PG... http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/

I think it has to do with income. If you're on both SSI and SSD, I'd have to think you have a shot. It's worth applying. But again, I think it has to do with HH size and income level, so those will influence your ability one way or another.

The source of income has nothing to do with it. It's about the AMOUNT of income http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/applicant_recipients/eligibility.htm

Doesn't look like you can find anything in Grants.gov that will support your business It is hard to find grants to start a business. Unlike the myths that some perpetuate, federal government and even private foundations hardly give grant money for starting a for-profit business. One possible exception is for companies developing or exporting agricultural goods, including food and forest product. Another exception could be the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs http://www.sba.gov/aboutsba/sbaprograms/... , which fund the research and development of technological innovation that meets specific government needs. Your best bet actually will be from the states if they offer grant programs for business startups (or any other special interest groups -- minorities, women, disabled, veterans, etc). Or check with non profit organizations, particularly women organizations (if you're a woman) if they offer grants. Even SBA does NOT give out grants. From the SBA website http://www.sba.gov/category/navigation-s... --------------------------------------... " The federal government does NOT provide grants for starting and expanding a business. Government grants are funded by your tax dollars and therefore require very stringent compliance and reporting measures to ensure the money is well spent. As you can imagine, grants are not given away indiscriminately. --------------------------------------... Grants from the federal government are only available to non-commercial organizations, such as non-profits and educational institutions in areas such as, medicine, education, scientific research and technology development. The federal government also provides grants to state and local governments to assist them with economic development." Nonetheless, you can go to the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) http://www.cfda.gov and Grants.gov http://www.grants.gov - these are two sites created by the federal government to provide transparency and information on grants. Browse through the listings and see if you can find any grant that would support a for-profit venture (you'd barely see any). Most of the federal grants are given to specific target groups with specific requirements (e.g. minority business owners involved in transportation related contracts emanating from DOT - Grant#20.905 Disadvantaged Business Enterprises Short Term Lending Program For private grants, you may want to check the Foundation Center's Foundation Grants for Individuals Online http://gtionline.fdncenter.org . It's a subscription based website ($9.95 per month) but their opening blurb only says that the database is ideal for "students, artists, academic researchers, libraries and financial aid offices." Entrepreneurs are apparently not one of them, so I take it they also don't have listings of private foundations who give grants to would-be entrepreneurs. Another option for you that can help you raise funds (though I doubt the full capitalization) is through crowd funding sites, where other people can give you funds for your business. Some supports creative endeavors while some are for businesses. Make sure to make your story compelling. Some examples of these sites are (for the complete list, see in the source) - Kickstarter http://www.kickstarter.com/ - Indiegogo http://www.indiegogo.com/ - Chipin http://www.chipin.com/ - Citizen Effect http://www.citizeneffect.org - Cofundit http://www.cofundit.com/

Go to http://grants.gov/ and follow the instructions. You will find that unless you are a nonprofit, in basic research or daycare, there are no grants for a small business. Private foundations offer grants. You can get a list of most US Foundations and private grant sources at http://www.foundations.org/

Because they need to pay off the gambling debts of the speculators and wealthy. Its gone beyond a joke. They are cutting the social welfare bill as well by EXACTLY the same amount that they gave to the unsecured Anglo bondholders! There is a demo about the cuts in education wednesday
