Site Live And Seeking Your Help

studentgrantshelp.org has been redesigned and is now available for both students and grant programs.  We are excited to offer this free resource to help college and university students cover ever rising tuition costs with grants and scholarships.

In its most recent survey of college pricing, the College Board reports that a moderate college budget for an in-state public college for the 2017–2018 academic year averaged $25,290.

Comparing the cost of tuition between 2008 to 2018 at the college this site’s editor attended tuition rose from $3,465 to $5,101 over the last ten years!  Wages did not increase but have arguably decreased since the “great recession.”

Student loan debt has reached 1.5 trillion dollars and its unfortunate that grants and scholarships haven’t increased with tuition rates.  With the failure of wages to keep up with tuition, students are borrowing more and paying longer than ever  after graduating.

Student Grants Help will provide articles and opinions concerning student debt and highlight alternatives to covering tuition such as paid internships and work study programs.  Student loans are not created equally and our site will be very critical of private student loans that fail to compete with federally subsidized loan programs.

Help By Sharing Information

You can help us.  If you are aware of a grant, scholarship, internship or similar program you can add that program to our site.  It’s the pay it forward approach that karma appreciates.  To update our site, you must have a registered account. We require this as a measure to limit spam and junk content.  Using your account you are able to upload documents to the document folders or you can post about opportunities in the site’s forum.

Together we can help make college affordable.

Thanks,
