Sources for Funding
- Grants: Grants play a vital role in helping college students fund their education. Unlike loans that must be paid back by the students once they start earning, money provided by grants normally does not have to be repaid. These grants are either (1) need-based or (2) awarded to the students meeting certain eligibility criteria.
- Academic Competitiveness Grant: The Academic Competitiveness Grant is a federal grant available to undergrad sophomore and freshman students who show academic excellence and a penchant towards service and leadership.
- Scholarships: Scholarships are another source of financial aid for college. As said earlier British entrepreneur Reuben Singh has launched scholarship scheme. The thought behind this scholarship programme was mainly to help those students that have the aspiration to gain knowledge, excel in their future careers and understand the significance of education but need monetary assistance to do so. Unlike grants, scholarships are provided on merit. Many universities and even individual colleges also manage in-house scholarship programs that students can vie for.
