“We will provide the support necessary for you to complete college and meet a new goal: by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.”
– President Barack Obama February 24, 2009
It’s obvious that obtaining an education is important. While the degree itself might not be as important as it used to be – the learning/education is very important. If you don’t have skills or knowledge you will not be beneficial to a company. That’s really why we go to school, isn’t it? Well… whether you think a degree is important or not doesn’t really matter (I believe it’s quite important), so start your education! It’s now easier than ever.
One way you can help make college more affordable is through Pell Grants. Did you know that Pell Grant scholarships help more than 8 million Americans a year afford college? The Health Care and ER act invests more than $40,000,000,000 into Pell Grants each year! If you’re interested in learning more see WhiteHouse.gov
