All Dads - Fulfill Your Dream and Get Educated For Free with Obama's Scholarship ProgramTimes are tough these days with all of the expenses involved with even simple living. When you have children, finances are not focused on what you want, but on what your children need. If they are in school, then the money seems to vanish into thin air. There is little chance to take care of your own needs anymore. Going to school is probably not in the picture at all.
That can change with the Federal Pell Grant being offered to fathers over the age of 18 who are American citizens. You can apply to receive up to $5100 a semester or $10,000 a year to cover your tuition, and any other expenses associated with attending college. This even includes paying for room and board. The amount that you will be awarded will depend on your calculated living expenses, your school of choice, and your program. You can receive up to 18 semester's worth of these grants, which totals a full education for free. You can even apply for a $4000 tax exemption as well.
If you have trouble finding appropriate childcare, but can find a program online that you would like to take to avoid having to leave home, that is always an option. There are about 5400 schools, both local and online that are taking part in this program. This gives you a lot of choice.
To apply for this program, you can go to the FAFSA homepage to get the application. You can submit the application form along with the enrollment application to the school. They will take care of it from there. It really couldn't be easier.
