Obama's Revised Scholarships and Grant Offers to $10,000 For All Fathers in 2009 and 2010

By: Lindsy Emery

Obama's declaration to provide free education for fathers by granting scholarship through his Federal Pell Grant will surely make all American dads smile. It has given the opportunity to fathers to fulfill their educational dreams once again after so many years of detachment from education. Over the years, millions of fathers have had to sacrifice their educational dreams for many different reasons. Now this scholarship plan is definitely an excellent incentive for those fathers to go back to school to get their degree that will give an incredible boost to their job prospects.

The grant Obama has announced gives a whooping $10,000 per year or $5100 per semester to a student. A student can get the grant money for up to 18 semesters or the equivalent term. This amount is good enough to cover the tuition fees and other expenditures on books and other daily expenses.

The application process is so simple that a person can apply in terms of minutes. All that is needed is for students to fill and submit the FASFA form that will serve as their candidature. There are, of course, eligibility conditions that must be matched. The two primary prerequisites are that the person needs to be a citizen of America and he must be of legal age (18 years).

The money is great just in and of itself and then to make it even better there are tax benefits to be had with this scholarship. So the amount is interest-free and the money is all paid-for by the government and then you are also spared from paying taxes, isn't this really great?
