Does anyone offer grants for graduate school students?

Yes. There are grants for Graduate Students. You should consult your college advisor or professor because they can offer some sources of these grants. Often times in Graduate school professors are conducting research and they have already been awarded grant money. They may be able to employ you or you can get a job with the university and they will offer you reduced fees to attend classes. You should check to see if you university has a GGC-Graduate Grants Committee.

You may also be able to obtain graduate grants from private organizations and corporations that support students' research projects in specialist areas of study. Minority foundations and organizations are another popular source for graduate grants and fellowships for graduate students from ethnic populations, for example; the American Indian Graduate Center provides grants to and scholarships for American Indians and Alaskans pursuing graduate degrees.

There would be a small limitation on the number of times you can withdraw money from your account. The money in SB accounts earn an interest of around 3.5% per year 2. Current account - These are similar to Savings accounts with two small differences. One is, the money in a current account does not earn interest and two is, you can withdraw any number of times. This account is for business people who would have high number of transactions in one single day. 3. Fixed Deposit - This is a deposit product where you deposit a certain sum of money with the bank for a specific duration of time. As per the deposit agreement you are expected to let the money be with the bank based on the deposit tenure. Hence the interest offered on such deposits is higher than normal deposits. Also you will attract a penalty charge for pre-closing such deposits 4. Recurring Deposits - These are similar to fixed deposits with a differenc e being, you deposit a small amount of money every month into this account for a specified duration of time and the bank would compound the interest every month and pay you in lump at the end of the tenure.

What is EFC mean on the FAFSA forms?

== == According to the FAFSA FAQ: The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) measures your family's financial strength and is used to determine your eligibility for federal student aid during one school year. Your EFC will be displayed on your Student Aid Report (SAR) after your FAFSA is processed. The information you reported on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to calculate your EFC. The school uses the EFC to determine your federal student aid eligibility and financial aid award. Your EFC is not the amount of money your family will have to pay for college nor is it the amount of federal student aid you will receive. It is a number used by your school to calculate the amount of federal student aid you are eligible to receive. For more information, you can visit the financial aid office at your school or look at Funding Education Beyond High School: The Guide to Federal Student Aid at studentaid.ed.gov/students/publications/student_guide/index.html. Or, you can request a free copy of Funding Education Beyond High School: The Guide to Federal Student Aid by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center.

What is FAFSA?

What is FAFSA? The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a document that is submitted annually by current and future college students who live in the United States. This document is used to help determine their eligibility for student financial aid. Available to both graduate and undergraduate college students, a FAFSA form is needed to apply for work study programs and Pell grants. FAFSA is a gateway to the nine federal aid programs for college students, and there are more than six hundred state and institutional aid programs that they can take advantage of.

Students who are considering a FAFSA should submit their completed application to the United States Department of Education each year in January for the approaching academic year. State, federal, and institutional aid is generally provided as a first come, first served program. There is an eighteen month waiting period for each student application, those who would like to be considered for the maximum amount of financial assistance should submit their FAFSA as soon as possible. Students who have previously applied can submit a new FAFSA with updated information for the coming year.

The questions listed on the FAFSA are related to the dependency, assets, and income of college students and their families. Some determining factors include the size of the household, assets, and how many students in the home are attending college. FAFSA questions are used to establish financial eligibility, there are no references to ethnicity, sexual preference, race, religion, or disabilities.

Nearly all students can receive some type of financial assistance, there are unsubsidized loans available regardless of their circumstances or income. Before submitting a FAFSA, each student must have a legal Social Security number, and must be a citizen of the United States, or an eligible non-citizen. Other requirements include a high school diploma or a General Equivalency Diploma (GED), and no criminal record for the possession or sale of illegal drugs while receiving federal aid.

Male college students between the ages of eighteen and twenty five must be registered with the United States Selective Service, and applicants can not be default in student loans, or owe refunds on federal grants. Federal aid can only be used for educational purposes.

Do you pay back FAFSA?

1) FAFSA is a free service offered by the U.S. Government. You do not have to pay a fee for using this service. Only processing service websites such as FAFSA.com will require payment for helping you. Is is not the same as FAFSA.gov so be careful.

2) FAFSA will inform the college or university if you qualify for financial aid. If you are approved you can receive a grant (which is not repaid) or a loan, which must be paid back unless you qualify for exemptions. If you are approved you can also receive need-based scholarships, which do not need to be paid back.

Each college or university should have a financial aid department where you can get factual, easy to understand information.

Football - American

Can you attempt more than one field goal in the same down?

No...not really. You can line up for a FG on 3rd down. If you get a bad snap, you can fall on the ball and then line up again on 4th down. But once a "kick" is attempted, you have given possesion of the ball to the other team. ----

The only way that could happen is if the kick was missed and there was a penalty that the kicking team accepted that would allow them to keep possession of the ball but would not give them a first down. *If the ball was kicked for goal, then charged down and recovered by the kicking team without having passed the line of scrimmage, the players might be able to reset and kick again. This has an extremely low probability of happening as the recovering player is likely to be downed or score a touchdown, and will never even consider attempting another kick.

What do's ceph n e mean on your maternity records?

Ceph stands for cepahlic, meaning the baby is head down, ready to go into the pelvis, but not yet tucked into the pelvis meaning it is not engaged. This is why it also has "N E", as it stands for "Not engaged". Depending on the pregnancy (wether its your first), or what week you are in, this could be normal.

My baby was breech at my 28 week appt, i walked into the next room to be scanned, and there we go, he had gone Ceph, or head down. He was that way until 34 weeks, where he went "ceph oblique", meaning his head was lying towards my oblique muscles, towards either side of my stomach. In my case, he was lying with his head down, to the left, with the rest of his body lying ACROSS me, feet under my ribs.

In cases where you are 36 weeks and he still hasn't engaged, your consultant may offer to attempt turning him via guidance of an ultrasound and palpation of the womb. Basically, feeling about and encouraging him to move deep into the pelvis. Im now 36 weeks & not sure if hes engaged. Im seeing my consultant on Thursday, maybe he'll help me out!!
