Unfortunately, not all schools offer the same level of potential learning experience. This can be due to a number of factors. There may be poor curriculum, lack of teacher support, a shortage of learning materials, difficult home circumstances among some students, or other issues that may lead to subpar outcomes. Government grant funding has been allocated to help improve some of these circumstances,

Learning a second language can be beneficial to you in a number of ways. There can be government grants to help you become bilingual or better, and knowing multiple languages can help you be better qualified for government grants or scholarships.

Options for a Second Career

There may come a time in your life when you find that it’s necessary or desirable to train for a second career, so it’s good to know that there are often government grants that will help you learn a new trade.

In one case, my student’s daughter had her heart set on one university, but had more money offered for a different school.

Should You Include Politics in Your Government Grant Proposals?

I get a lot of questions about government grant proposals, and I’ve reviewed a fair number of them.

You Can Influence Where Your Government’s Money Goes

Each of us is just one person, and sometimes we can feel powerless against giant institutions, especially bodies of government. After all, they’re notorious for being bureaucratic and staffed by uncaring workers who take pleasure in thwarting citizens, right? The politicians are no better, promising everything to get elected, then forgetting about us little people once they’re in.

What’s the Difference between Scholarships and Educational Grants?

There are numerous ways that you can beat the high cost of tuition. Two of the main ones are scholarships and educational grants. I sometimes get questions about what the difference is between them, as well as what all the other types of educational grants are, such as fellowships, subsidies, work study programs, and more. What they have in common is that any free money that

Free Money for Higher Education

Post-secondary education can be one of the largest expenses we will face in our lives, second only to buying a house. Fortunately, we do not necessarily need to pay the entire amount out of pocket. You may be able to get free money for tuition, and sometimes also books, supplies, and living expenses. Governments, both federal and state/provincial, are potential sources of funding.
