Some sources for private student grants may be right under your nose and with a little work may help to reduce the cost of a college education for you or a dependent. In some cases, you may need to get a number of grants because the dollar amounts awarded are so small. Just keep in mind that every dollar counts and it all adds up to reduce the amount you may owe on college loans later. Some sources you can contact regarding funds include civic organizations. Groups like Kiwanis or Rotary often provide small dollar scholarships. These may be competitive and require you to complete an application.
