Yuppie!!!! I don't know how much. I will let you know when I receive the first check. I am excited! I am still looking for work, but the extra income will help me a lot with the rent, food, and my children! Yes!!!!

I thought Pell Grants were for college and you had to strictly use them for that purpose?

No, they are also helpful in paying bills. That is what the counselor told me. She told me they are useful especially when students like me don't have good work.

That is great! It must be a relief having the financial assistance. It will help you focus on your courses when you don't have to worry so much about money.

Thats such great news! I get a Pell Grant every quarter for school...I never knew that you could use it for other things besides college?? I know that helps out so I don't have to pay the money for college. It would be very expensive if I didn't get one. Now you can have less worries and you will do better in school.

Pell Grants are awesome, congratulations Ali from the other Ali :p !

Yeah, you can use Pell Grants for anything in school, like living expenses, books, a tutor, medical bills. They're great.

How wonderful!

I think the best part is, because it's a grant, you don't have to pay it back later! Nothing like graduating and having all that debt!

After reading the award notification, I found out all the information. The Pell Grant is used to pay for tuition and fees. After that is paid, any remaining balance goes to me and I can use it for anything such as the rent, paying bills, or buying food.

Sounds like a great deal to me!! Hopefully you'll have enough left over to help you out with other bills!!
