Pell Grants...

Anyone know a good site to apply for grants? I want to further my education, but every site i try just leads me to random sites asking me to sign up for free college information and it says nothing about applying for the grant.

  • the FAFSA will automatically apply you for the pell grant.

  • At the FAFSA website it is going to ask you what college you are going to attend and they have a number that you enter for that school. go to the school's financial aide office to get that.

  • http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ Takes you straight to the site to fill out your FAFSA. http://studentaid.ed.gov/PORTALSWebApp/students/english/PellGrants.jsp?tab=funding Tells you about Pell Grants.


     Since Pell Grants are a federal student aid thing, you need to fill out the FAFSA before you can get them.  You can also fill out the FAFSA in a financial aid office.  You will need to have an idea of what colleges you will be applying to so you can put their codes on the FAFSA.

  • You have to fill out the FAFSA to apply for any financial aid or student loans at any college. FAFSA is the free Fed app for financial aid and what colleges base how much aid they will give out. The app online takes about 30 minutes to fill out and it is very simple. Have 2009 tax return with you. The financial aid office at the college you want to attend can give you a lot of info.

  • Like other's have said, start by filling out the FAFSA. My college has a free lab with computer's and you can walk in during certain hours and they will help you file it. Maybe your's does to?
