  1. It 's a sad reality for college students, the cost for school and extracurricular activities that can be very draining to finances, making it much more difficult for other students, their parents on a tight budget. Here are the subsidies come into play.Grants as a source of funding is often overlooked, that students pay for their expenses out of their pockets. Most students are on student loans, which must of course be returned in the future But with grants, there is no need to set the condition that the money was granted for the purpose must be used to pay back.
