Does anyone know how to get a free grant?

I keep getting things in the mail saying I can apply for free grant money to pay bill or whatever I need. Does anyone know how to apply for or get a grant without paying these companies anywhere from $25 to $300. Or has anyone used a company that was actually worth it?

  • Beeeeeee Carefullllllll !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is not such a thing as a free lunch. In reality, grants are very hard to apply for, let alone to receive. The easiest I know are educative, that have a very strict directive. Those with loosest directive have the highest applicants (highest competition). In reality, to advertise a grant would be almost counter productive, therefore a scam.

  • Nope. The only grant that I know of is for college expenses and they are not very difficult to get and are not very strict with them. You fill out the FAFSA, a college app and wait for approval or not. The less money you make, the more of a grant you will get.
