People of Hispanic descent make up the biggest minority group in the U.S. This group is also the youngest. However, according to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) in 2006, more than 87 percent of Hispanics did not have bachelor’s degrees. This poor number is due in part to financial hardship. Hispanic college grants can help more Latinos attend (and graduate from) the universities they desire.

Students with disabilities are eligible for several types of financial assistance. These include grants, scholarships, and programs funded by federal and state governments. College grants for the disabled can mean the difference between obtaining a degree or not; it pays to investigate these options when students start to map out their educational gameplans.
According to the Journal of Black in Higher Education, in 1984, just 20.3 percent of all 18- to 24-year-old African Americans were enrolled in higher education. In 2004, that percentage had risen to 31.8 percent. While the number of college attendees has risen substantially in 20 years, many African American students are unable to complete their educations because they don’t have the money to pay for college. Several government and private organizations offer African American college grants–financial aid that, unlike loans, do not have to be repaid.
