      For most people college is extremely expensive. Some individuals cannot attend college solely because they can't afford the tuition and other expenses. To help students who need financial support there are grants available that may provide some relief. Not every student is eligible for every grant. A little research will allow you to determine which grants you can apply for.

    Boren Awards

    • Boren Scholarships are scholarships that are awarded to U.S. undergraduate and graduate students who wish to study overseas. The scholarships, funded by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), can be up to $20,000 per student. NSEP scholarships are often awarded to students studying languages that are not often taught and to those who are going to study in areas that are of interest to U.S. national security. These areas include Africa, Europe, the Middle East and more. Some of the languages of interest are Arabic, Chinese, Korean and more.

    TEACH Grant

    • TEACH grants are available to students interested in becoming elementary or secondary school teachers. TEACH grants are available to undergrads, post-baccalaureate or graduate students taking classes to become teachers. In order to receive the grant you must be willing to commit to serve four years as a teacher in a school that serves low-income students. These four years must be completed within eight years of graduation. If you don't fulfill the teaching requirement, the money received from the grant will be transferred into a student loan that you will then have to repay. You can receive up to $4,000 from this grant.

      Federal Student Aid


    • For individuals with extreme financial need there is a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG). This grant will provide up to $4,000 for eligible students. Not all colleges except this type of grant and eligibility is based also on the availability of funds. A student who has received a Federal Pell Grant will be given higher priority than one who has not.
