If you have a parent in prison or on parole, and you’re between the ages of 18 and 27, you might qualify for a college scholarship.
CCEFscholarships.org has given out over $150,000 in financial aid for a college education. $91,000 of this was donated by inmates in 17 different states.
It appears that the average scholarship is only about $1,000, but it could be a great start. CCEF also helps children of incarcerated parents to fill out their college and financial aid applications, potentially maximizing the amont of aid provided.
I’m starting to write an article about this for April’s RazorWire, but thought I’d mention it on InmateBlogger. Just something to consider, as free money is usually a nice thing 🙂
