Free Grant             Keep in mind that applying for ethnic grants does not mean you cannot apply for other

Resources              grants as well such as a Pell Grant as well as financial aid. There is no limit to the
                       number of grants you can apply for and receive. Although each individual grant may have

                       preset limitations, they are each separate and individual entities, so they can be
                       combined and added together to help cover the overall costs of a college education.

                       Apart from the government minority grants available, many large corporations offer their
                       own private grants for students pursuing a position in their company. If you fall into this
                       niche category the grants are quite easy to qualify for and be awarded. These corporations
                       are under strict guidelines of diversification and therefore have a vested interest as well as
                       motivation for handing out this free money. The money has already been put aside
                       specifically for this purpose, you just need to know how and where to ask for it, your
                       student counselor can help in this regard.

                       As with all grants and financial aid the first step is to fill out the FAFSA form and
                       determine first of all if you are in need of financial help. All grants are based on your
                       financial need for them, if according to the information you put in the FAFSA form you do
                       not qualify for financial aid, then you most likely will not receive any minority grants either.
                       However, if you do qualify for financial aid, there many, many minority grants out there just
                       waiting for you to grab!
