Furthering your education is an expensive endeavor, but you may qualify for government grants that help lower your overall tuition cost. Unlike loans, this money generally does not have to be repaid. Requirements to obtain educational grants vary based on the type of grant. Some grants require you to meet income-based requirements, while special grants are available for specific fields, such as for teachers.
