Open Education Database Grants
The nonprofit group Demos reported that there is currently $1.2 trillion in outstanding student loan debt, with 49 states spending less on student education than they did before the recession. As student debt continues to rise, it’s important to understand how our once debt-free system of public education has been transformed into a system where seven out of 10 students now borrow. To help bridge this funding gap, our college planning experts at have developed several extensive lists of grants for various student groups. We provide context for how students can best take advantage of available resources while keeping college affordable. On our website, we have databases of federal grants, need-based grants, master’s grants, grants for women, and the SMART grant. Deadline: June 30, 2018
