High school graduates who take advantage of this updated service can receive up to $6,495 per year in assistance. Applicants who qualify for the Pell Grant are not required to pay back any scholarship money received.

According to data from the US Census Bureau, while 88% of African-Americans have a high school diploma, only 26% have a bachelor’s degree — much lower than the national average of 36%. The rising cost of university education has become a stumbling block for people of color, many of whom come from underprivileged families.

To help bridge this gap, College Planning Experts gives students access to scholarship programs such as the Pell Grant. Over the years, the company has helped over 5,000 clients get the funding they need to earn a university degree.

As part of its service, College Planning Experts will thoroughly explain all the qualification criteria for the Pell Grant. It will also assist high school graduates with filling out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to maximize their chances of approval. Students will also be given advice on which schools to attend based on their desired degree.

Prospective clients can request a consultation to better understand the Pell Grant application process. They may also attend the company’s various workshops to learn about other scholarship opportunities.
